    Abstract

    Reactive distillation is well-suited for applications in the biorefinery, particularly for reactions that are equilibrium limited and where product volatility can be effectively taken advantage of. The use of catalysis in reactive distillation to form organic acid esters is presented. The process circumvents many of the inherent difficulties in traditional esterification processes, and facilitates formation of high purity ester in near theoretical yields. The formation of ethyl esters of lactic acid, succinic acid, and citric acid are examined. Their ethyl esters are desirable target species because of their attractive properties and because they serve as prototypical compounds for the application of reactive distillation. Results from both batch esterification studies and pilot-scale reactive distillation experiments are presented. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 230th ACS National Meeting (Washington, DC 8/28/2005-9/1/2005).
