A study of the mechanisms of the salt catalyzed carbochlorination of kaolin.
Metall Trans B 1984 Dec; 15B:695-700
Continuous weighing of kaolin during carbochlorination has been used to show the superiority of nacl as a catalyst for increasing the reaction rate and selectivity at 625 deg. to 650 deg. C, and the possibility of using different types of carbon as a reductant. Initial distribution of nacl in the kaolin was found to be of importance. A reaction mechanism involving the formation of naalcl4 and alumina solubility in this salt is used to explain the effect of reactor configuration and kaolin particle geometry.
