Selective Hydrogenation of Alpha-Methylstyrene to Cumene (AMS Hydrogenation)

0.5% Pd/Al 5637 E 1/12"

0.5% Pd/Al 5637 is a precious metal catalyst specifically designed for selective hydrogenation of alpha methyle styrene (AMS) to cumene while avoiding the undesirable side reaction of hydrogenation of cumene to isopropyle cyclohexane (IPCH). The derived cumene yields can be recycled in the process, increasing the overall profitability of the plant.

0.5% Pd/AS R 45043

0,5% Pd/AS 45043 is a precious metal catalyst specifically designed for selectively hydrogenating alpha methyle styrene (AMS) to cumene while avoiding the undesirable side reaction of hydrogenating cumene to isopropyle cyclohexane (IPCH). Since AMS has a very limited market, it is often desirable to hydrogenate it back to cumene and recycle it in the process.
