Synthesizes of Ion-Exchange Resins as MTBE Production Catalyst

Arjomand Mehrabani-Zeinabad, Mohammad Mehdi Akbarnejad and Hossein Hosseini

Abstract:
Ion-exchange resins are used as catalyst in production of MTBE. The catalyst are used in various forms. Catalytic packing is one of these forms that can be in different shapes and sizes. As a part of a research study, the resin is synthesized by copolymerization of styrene and divinylbenzene. The polymerization process is carried out under various selected conditions. Various properties of the produced catalysts such as acidic capacity, swelling ratio, porosity, effective beads size and density are measured. The effects of reactant monomer concentration and various stabilizers on efficiency and quality of product are tested. The most comparable produced resins to the commercial ones from surface properties point of view, acidity and morphology, are used for production of various types of catalyst packing implementing sol-gel technology.
