Abstract

The catalytic characteristics of massive and loaded sulfonic resins in the synthesis of ethyl tert-butyl ether at atmospheric and increased pressures have been compared. It has been established that massive sulfonic resins are more active than loaded resins at atmospheric pressure. At higher pressures, on the other hand, the activity and selectivity of catalysts are greater the lower the content of polymer as a result of the increased effectiveness of the acid centers.
