Acidic catalysts are used in a large number of industrial reactions. One exemple could be the conversion of petroleum hydrocarbons to gasoline and related products. These reactions include decomposition of high-molecular-weight hydrocarbons, polymerization of unsaturated hydrocarbons and isomerization of aliphatic hydrocarbons.
Acidic Catalysts can be used for various of applications.
Almost all Acidic Catalysts are available as powder. But they are also available as a granules and extrudates.
Transfer of an alkyl group from one molecule to another.
Reaction in which alcohol and acid form an ester as reaction product.
Etherification is dehydration of an alcohol to form ethers.
Rearrangement reaction is a broad class of organic reactions in which the carbon skeleton of a molecule is rearranged to give a structural isomer of the original molecule.
Isomerisation is well known process by which one molecule is transformed into another molecule which has exactly the same atoms, but the atoms have a different arrangement.
