The present invention relates to the production of acrylonitrile, and more particularly to an improved method for the catalytic production of acrylonitrile from hydrocyanic acid and acetylene. 0000083493 00000 n Acrylonitrile occurs as a colorless liquid that is soluble in water. We are of the opinion that the pressure of the hydrocyanic acid over the catalyst solution is substantially in equilibrium with the hydrocyanic acid dissolved in the catalyst, and that these values offer a true basis for the evaluation of the effect of hydrocyanic acid pressure on the reaction. From the receiving vessel 10 the unreacted acetylene and remaining by-product gases pass through line I I to absorption vessel 12 wherein the by-product gases are entrapped and the unreacted acetylene is returned through line 13, meter 14 and pump 15 to the cycle. 5.6.2 Acrylonitrile and Acrolein - Prepare separate stock solution s for acrylonitrile and acrolein. l-Glutamic acid hydrochloride was then isolated from this material and purified as MSG. 65 14 Styrene-Acrylonitrile Production Facilities ..... 66 15 Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene Production We present a process for renewable ACN production using 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP), which can be produced microbially from sugars.The process achieves ACN molar yields exceeding 90% from ethyl 3-hydroxypropanoate 199 0. Our investigations lead us to believe that, in the operation of the catalyst, the acetylene and hydrocyanic acid dissolve in the catalyst solution to form complexes of varying composition with the catalyst, and that the concentrations of these complexes depend on the concentration of the dissolved molecules which in turn depends on the equilibrium partial pressures of the gases (C2H2 and HCN). It is known that acrylonitrile may be obtained by passing a mixture of hydrocyanic acid and acetylene over such materials as activated carbon, silica gel and metal cyanides heated at temperatures ranging from 400 to 500° C. Although these substances definitely catalyze the reaction, considerable side reactions occur and the rate of production of acrylonitrile is relatively slow. Another object resides in a method for the production of acrylonitrile requiring only simple equipment with high efficiencies. Acrylonitrile (CASRN 107-13-1), also known as AN or vinyl cyanide, is a man-made VOC. It was ranked among the 50 highest-volume chemi-cals for several years (CEN 2009).
