Design and Analysis of Fixed-Bed Catalytic Reactors

The 8th lecture in the series of educational events in the heterogeneous catalysis organized by ZIOC RAS, Haldor Topsoe A/S (Denmark) and the Russian Catalytic Society was held at ZIOC RAS.

The invited lecturer was Dr. Vladilen A. Makhlin (Karpov R&D Center and Lomonosov Moscow University of Fine Chemical Technologies) who presented a lecture “Design and Analysis of Fixed-Bed Catalytic Reactors”.

The lecturer addressed the issues of designing and analyzing adiabatic reactors for essential catalytic processes such as methanol synthesis, isoamylene dehydration, and methanol and ammonium oxidation. Dr. Makhlin gave a detailed description of equipment for acetylene hydrochlorination, oxidative acylation and partial oxidation of ethylene and о-xylene, and low temperature Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. Particular attention was paid to parametric sensitivity and troubleshooting such as runaway.

The next lecture of the course has been scheduled for April 26 2017.

Important events:

Professor Mario Pargliaro Lecturing at Zelinsky Institute Prof Mario Pagliaro (Palermo Italy) gave two talks on June 8th and 9th.
Selective In-Situ Metal Azide Reactions Alexey Sukhorukov, N. D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry, Moscow, Russia, and colleagues studied the selective reactions of in-situ generated metal azides on N,N-bis(oxy)enamines. By combining readily generated bis(oxy)enamine substrates with sodium azide and one of a variety of metal salts (including Mg, Cu, Zn, Co, and Ni), the researchers showed that the metal cation selectively alters the mechanism to favor the formation of specific organoazide products.
On February 1st, Prof. Gleb Sukhorukov from the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, gave a lecture “Remote Controlled Delivery Nanosystems” at ZIOC.
“We can record up to one thousand spectra per day” Director of Zelinsky Institute about Devising New Molecules
Steep and Thorny Way of a Scientist in Russia Prof. Valentine Ananikov participated in the plenary panel discussion HR Challenge for the Society held in the framework of VII Russian National Congress of Young Scientists and Specialists on November 30 – December 1 2016 in MEPhI.
