Title: DETERGENT ALKYLATION PROCESS FOR CONTROLLING ALKYLATION EXOTHERM WITH PARAFFINS
Abstract:
The process of producing an alkylbenzene compound from the alkylation of an aromatic compound with an acyclic monoolefin is an exothermic process. A process for maintaining a relatively constant temperature improves the process and allows for controlling the yields. The process includes recycling a compound through the reactor that is relatively inert, but will moderate the exotherm, while maintaining the 2-phenyl content of the final alkylbenzene product.
