    Abstract

    The emerging development of the biorefinery concept for making fuels and chemicals from renewable biomass feedstocks has opened opportunities for novel reaction pathways and processes. Reactive distillation has been used extensively in the petrochemical industry to manufacture products such as methyl acetate and MTBE. Reactive distillation was applied to the formation and recovery of several biorenewable chemicals. These applications include the recovery of propylene glycol and ethylene glycol from aqueous solution via reaction with acetaldehyde to form low-boiling acetals, transesterification of vegetable triglycerides, and other organic esters for fuel and related applications, and formation of organic acid ethyl esters from their parent acids and ethanol. Ethyl lactate could be synthesized from aqueous lactic acid solution in high purity using reactive distillation. Ethyl esters of succinic and citric acids could be synthesized in high yield using various reactor configurations at high temperature. This is an abstract of a paper presented ACS Fuel Chemistry Meeting (Washington, DC Fall 2005).
