The synthesis of 1,1-Dibutoxyethane in a fixed-bed adsorptive reactor using Amberlyst 15 was studied for the first time. The adsorption of non-reactive pairs was investigated experimentally, at 25°C, by frontal chromatography in a fixed-bed adsorber. In order to avoid the immiscibility of the liquid phase, the liquid-liquid equilibrium for the mixture 1-butanol/water was studied. The multicomponent equilibrium adsorption data was assumed to follow the modified Langmuir type isotherm. Reaction experiments of 1,1-Dibutoxyethane production and column regeneration were performed in the fixed-bed adsorptive reactor. This work will enable further developments in chromatographic reactors aiming at the 1,1-Dibutoxyethane process intensification.
