TECHNICAL NOTE: Counter Current Liquid-Liquid Extraction

TECHNICAL NOTE: CC-LLE Counter Current Liquid-liquid Extraction

The Coflore® mixing technology has been shown to give high mixing intensity independent of fluid velocity for both homogeneous and multi-phase systems. Strong mixing is beneficial to mass transfer limited reactions but also to work up steps such as extraction.

Process Development for Downstream Processing of ε-caprolactone in a Biocatalytic Reaction

INTRODUCTION Production processes of economically important oxyfunctionalized synthesis building blocks are mostly based on “classical chemical” methods. Up to now ε- caprolactone is synthesized via oxidation of cyclohexane to cyclohexanol/ cyclohexanone. The KA-oil is oxidized with peroxyacetic acid in an
