Flow Conversion Kinetics of Ortho and Parahydrogen
This and the following paper are progress reports in our continuing study of the catalyzed conversion of ortho and parahydrogen. Last year1 we presented some converter design data based on experiments with a new hydrous ferric oxide gel catalyst. These data consisted of space velocity versus conversion curves for ortho to para conversions at various temperatures, two feeds, liquid and vapor phase, and gave a comparison between results obtained under approximately isothermal and adiabatic conditions.
