ABSTRACT
Reactive Distillation (RD) is an interesting alternative to the classical combination of reaction and separation units when reversible or consecutive chemical reactions occur, by performing reaction and separation simultaneously, it is possible to exceed equilibrium conversion. Also rate of formation of byproducts may be reduced using this technique. Though the advantages of RD are well documented, its commercial applications are still limited. Reasons to this are the complexity of the process, lack of knowledge to design these systems, need for improved software tools to evaluate and design RD. Various complex parameters of reaction, mass transfer, hydrodynamics, physical properties and steps in the design and software for RD has been discussed.
