CONSTANTIN SORIN ION, MIHAELA BOMBOS, RAMI DOUKEH, GABRIEL VASILIEVICI, VASILE MATEI KINETICS OF 1-DODECANETHIOL DESULFURIZATION BY REACTIVE ADSORBTION ON MGO/DOLOMITE Desulfurisation of 1-dodecanethiol was performed by adsorption process on MgO adsorbent. The adsorbant was characterized by determining the adsorption isotherms, specific surface area, pore volume and average pore diameter. Adsorption experiments were performed in continuous system at 300-450°C, 5 atm and volume hourly space velocities of 1…2 h-1. Conversion of 1-dodecanetol increases with increasing temperature and decreasing volume hourly space velocities. It was identified the stage determinant of the process and a kinetic study of the desulfurization process was developed by reactive adsorption of 1-dodecanethiol on a magnesium oxide adsorbent.
