Abstract:

Low-field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is applied to study the hydrogenation of toluene in a lab-scale reactor. A conventional benchtop NMR system was modified to achieve chemical shift resolution. After an off-line validity check of the approach, the reaction product is analyzed on-line during the process, applying chemometric data processing. The conversion of toluene to methylcyclohexane is compared with off-line gas chromatographic analysis. Both classic analytical and chemometric data processing was applied. As the results, which are obtained within a few tens of seconds, are equivalent within the experimental accuracy of both methods, low-field NMR spectroscopy was shown to provide an analytical tool for reaction characterization and immediate feedback.
