Abstract

Isomerisation of α-pinene oxide to campholenic aldehyde was performed by immobilising zinc triflate based catalysts on the surface of a spinning disc reactor (SDR). Two types of catalyst have been studied and the influence of operating parameters such as rotational speed, feed flow rate and reaction temperature on conversion and selectivity towards campholenic aldehyde has been investigated in considerable detail. The findings of the study suggest that immobilising the catalyst on the reactor surface and performing the reaction in continuous mode has potential for achieving benefits of Green Chemical Technology (GCT).
