Abstract: Kinetics of methyl tert.butyl ether synthesis from methanol and isobutene was measured in gaseous phase at 85 °C and atmospheric pressure on macroreticular ion exchanger catalyst containing strongly acidic functional groups SO3H and on the same catalyst partially neutralized by sodium and iron ions. The form of the best Langmuir-Hinshelwood type kinetic equation suggests absorption of the reactants in the polymer mass causing ìswellingî of it and influencing the accessibility of active sites by the reactants. …
