Abstract Of Catalytic Hydrolysis

Abstract

            This experiment utilizes an acid-catalyzed hydrolysis of ethyl acetate to determine the rate kinetics of the reaction, and the reaction mechanisms of the catalytic system. An anion ion-exchange resin was used as the catalyst, where ethyl acetate was hydrolyzed to form products of ethanol and acetic acid. Flow rates of ethyl acetate were varied to be 20, 50, 80, 110 and 140 mL/min while the temperature was varied to be 30, 40, 50 and 60°C to determine the effect of each on the reaction kinetics.
