Abstract: Compact reaction systems for exploratory studies, over wide pressure intervals, are essential in many applications. This is particularly true for studies involving very expensive reagents and isotopes. The system was used for heterogeneous catalysis, with a chiral fixed bed reactor. The system consisted of a 25ml 2-phase stirred-tank(gas, liquid), liquid phase pump, a fixed bed reactor with small amount of catalyst, in-situ IR high pressure cell, in-line HPLC injection valves and recycle transfer lines. The potential of this new experimental setup was demonstrated using the example of asymmetric heterogeneous hydrogenation of acetophenone. Quantitative evaluation of the reagent, product by the in-situ FTIR measurement allowed simultaneous determination of reaction kinetics.The system was also use for homogeneous catalysis. A 100ml 2-phase stirred-tank was used instead of a volume of 25 in the heterogeneous catalysis. Good kinetic data were achieved.The new systems allowed easy perturbations and sample acquisition. Also, isotopic work is more easily performed.
