Revisiting Glycerol Esterification with Acetic Acid over Amberlyst-35 via Statistically Designed Experiments: Overcoming Transport Limitations

18 February 2019, Version 1
This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Turnover rates for glycerol esterification with acetic acid over Amberlyst-35 were measured under different temperatures, reactants and active sites concentrations, and catalyst particle sizes. Data were collected in a batch reactor. Experiments were done following a sequence of factorial experimental designs.
