Paper Abstract

In-situ FTIR has been used to monitor reactions occurring in an automated laboratory calorimeter. The study successfully acquired both Arrhenius parameters and heats of reaction from a single experiment. The combination of enhanced control and measurement sensitivity affords an efficient method of reaction monitoring and process development. In addition to providing composition monitoring, the FTIR-based analysis system revealed reaction pathway information. The highly controllable automated laboratory calorimeter accurately and precisely regulated and recorded reaction conditions leading to the estimation of model parameters with high confidence.
