Abstract

Alkylation Using EPZ10

Author(s): S. S Mahajan, S. N Hingu

EPZ10, a supported reagent catalyst, offers an environmentally benign and a commercially viable alternative to the conventional Friedel-Crafts catalyst, anhydrous AICI3. Aluminium chloride is mainly associated with unacceptable levels of waste and by-products. With EPZ10, the aqueous effluent from quenching is eliminated and acidic gaseous emissions are limited to those produced from the reaction mixture itself. It can be filtered off from the process, and may be reused, depending on the reaction type and temperature. It is also reported to give higher yields as compared to the corresponding reactions using AICI3. In this article, synthesis of three alkylbenzenes using EPZ10 as the catalyst is discussed.
