The mechanism by which propane forms during the decomposition of isopropyl alcohol over vanadium trioxide

  • 40 Accesses

Summary

  1. 1.

    The mechanism by which propane forms from isopropyl alcohol over vanadium trioxide was studied at 315°C with the use of propylene labeled with radiocarbon-14. Under these reaction conditions propane forms practically only through hydrogenolysis of isopropyl alcohol, and not through hydrogenation of propylene.

  2. 2.

    The rate of isopropyl alcohol dehydration is determined from the rate of formation of propylene.
