The article addresses the growing adipic acid market as of May 2006. According to sellers, the bullish tendency of the adipic acid market has been provoked by a tight supply position, coupled with strong demand both in Europe and in Asia. With a number of planned maintenance shutdowns hitting the market over the next few months both in Europe and in Asia, there is not expected to be any let-up in the supply chain.

    We have developed a highly informative micropulse method for isomerization of n-hexane. We have found that the primary reaction products on Pd/HM, Pd/HY, and Pd/HTsVM [analog of HZSM] catalysts are only 2- and 3-methylpentanes. We propose mechanisms for their formation. The reaction is...
