Synthesis of n-Amyl Chloroacetate Catalyzed by Activated Carbon Supported Phosphotungstic Acid
Phosphotungstic acid(abbreviated as PW12) supported on active carbon was used as catalyst of n-Amyl chloroacetate synthesis. Review the influence of various factors on esterification ratio, such as ratio of alcohol and acid, reaction temperature, the amount of catalyst and so on. The experiments indicated that the activity of PW12 supported on active carbon was better, the optimum reaction conditions were followings, loading of PW12 was 18%, ratio of alcohol and acid was 1.3:1, the percent of catalyst in reactants was 2.5%.
