Application Note 46 – Photochemical hydrogenation with TiO2 packed column
This application note expands on the work described in application notes 41 and 42 describing a
photochemical hydrogenation using an immobilized photo catalyst. Using an immobilized catalyst
allows the reactants to be free of a titanium dioxide slurry/suspension. Instead the TiO2 is packed
into a column type reactor. The versatility the of Vapourtec’s systems is demonstrated and a new
UV illumination system for column reactors is presented.
