Kinetic Laws of Methane Catalytic Oxychlorination Reaction
In the paper, the oxidation reaction of methane was studied in a flow reactor and a catalyst containing ( CuCl 2 ) x : ( KCl ) y : ( ZnCl 2 ) z : ( MnCl 2 ) k / YuKTs with high activity, selectivity and efficiency was selected. The influence of various factors on the reaction rate of oxidation of methane and the yield of reaction products in the presence of the selected catalyst was studied. Based on the obtained results, the kinetic laws of the reaction were investigated and the following optimal conditions for the oxidation of methane were selected: ( CuCl 2 ) x : (KCl ) y : ( ZnCl 2 ) z : ( MnCl 2 ) k / YuKTs content catalyst, T = 340 o C, t = 0.1 second, N 2 : CH 4 : HCl: O 2 = 5: 14: 2: 1 volume ratio, P = 0.1 MPa, size of catalyst fractions 0.7 ÷ 1.2 mm, gas flow rate 17.2 l / h, contact time 0.1, linear flow rate 10.2 cm / sec .. Selected catalyst participation of the conversion of hydrogen chloride, methane and oxygen, respectively 82.6%, 44.0% and 61.3%, compared to the methyl chloride selection is 98.6%.
