Abstract

A kinetic model was developed for the enantioselective hydrogenation of 1-phenyl-1,2-propanedione based on parallel racemic and enantioselective routes in the presence of cinchonidine. The Langmuir-Hinshelwood type of competitive adsorption approach was used in the model, which was combined with a batch reactor model. The proposed model could sufficiently describe the observed kinetic results.
