Investigation of the Influence of Fluid Dynamics on the Formation of Main and By-Product in Fast Competing Consecutive Gas-Liquid Reactions Using Imaging UV/VIS-Spectroscopy
To form many bulk chemicals, gaseous substances must be mixed and reacted with a continuous liquid phase. In this research work, we systematically investigate to what extent the formation of a side product in a fast competing consecutive reaction can be influenced by the time scales of mixing. For this purpose, a Taylor bubble experiment is used, in which the time scales of mixing can be varied systematically and reproducibly. It is shown, that the mixing in the wake of a bubble is of great importance for the formation of by-products.
