The article offers information on high pressure chemical reactions in chemical engineering. In chemical industries, a large number of chemical transformations involving gas, liquid or solid occur in elevated pressure environments. Topics discussed include the characteristics of high pressure chemical reactions, supercritical fluids, the high pressure reactor set up, safety considerations, and examples like the catalytic hydrogenation of m-dinitrobenzene to m-phenylenediamine.

    It is shown that the main parameter controlling the rate of solid-phase imidization is the degree of connectivity of the reacting system, which is characterized by its effective spectral dimension. In turn, this dimension is a function of the structure of the macromolecular coil, which is the...
