|Title:||Process optimization, kinetics and mechanism of the nitroxidation of 4-picoline over NiO:Fe2O3 catalyst system|
|Abstract:||The reaction of 4-picoline with nitric oxide for the synthesis of 4-cyanopyridine has been studied over nickel oxide-iron oxide catalyst in the temperature range 280-360°C. A maximum yield (88%) of 4-cyanopyridine is obtained at a temperature of 320°C over a catalyst NiO:Fe2O3 ::40:60 at a NO/picoline mole ratio 50. Kinetic studies reveal that the mechanism of the reaction is of the "Redox” type. A tentative mechanism of the process is also suggested.|
