Abstract

The gross kinetics for the oxidation of ethylene were determined over Pd and Pd-Au alloys in a steady state flow reactor and in a recirculating reactor, stripping the products with each pass. The partial oxidation products over Pd included acetic acid, acetic anhydride, acetaldehyde and (a trace) ethylene oxide. Selectivity for partial oxidation varied from 25 to 40%. Both the total rate and selectivity increased with O//2 pressure.
