Abstract

The reaction of dimethylphenylcarbinol in the presence of phenol, acetone, and sulfuric acid to give α-methylstyrene and byproducts as well as the reverse reactions was considered. The treatment of the experimental data was performed within a suitable mathematical model by using an optimization procedure. The kinetic parameters governing the different steps of the process and their dependence on temperature and phenol, water, and acid concentrations were determined. Useful indications for the attainment of the best working conditions were obtained.
