Abstract

The slow oxidation of ethylene oxide in a stirred-flow reactor was studied, and accurate, fast-response thermocouples were used for the measurement of temperature rises due to the oxidation. The effects of mixture strength, ambient temperature and total pressure on the temperature rise are illustrated and discussed. Comparisons are made with results previously reported for ethylene oxide when studied in closed vessels.
