Thermodynamics and prediction of solvent effects on the reductive amination

Abstract:
The aim of this work is to thermodynamically describe the reductive amination and predict solvent effects on reaction equilibrium and reaction kinetics.

.

Description:

Solvents in which reactions are performed can significantly affect both, reaction equilibria and reaction kinetics.

Therefore, to optimize yield, selectivity and reaction rate for a desired product, it is important to consider the solvent effect on a reaction. [1,2]

This project concerns the thermodynamic characterizations of the reductive amination (Figure 1).

For that purpose, PC-SAFT is used to model the required phase equilibria, gas solubilities, and the reaction equilibrium of the amination.

Based on these results, the influence of different solvents on the equilibrium composition will be investigated.
