Adipic Acid Catalyzed Preparation by Tungstic Acid

Adipic acid is mainly used for nylon 66 engineering plastics and raw materials, and in the production of various ester products.

Adipic acid is also used for polyurethane elastomer material, acidifier various foods and beverages, sometimes its better than citric acid and tartaric acid. Adipic acid has many functions and a huge demand, but it is a big polluter. The industrial process mainly uses nitric acid to oxidize cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone (KA oil). The method has high yield, but nitric acid seriously damages the equipment and produces a large amount of nitrogen oxides which pollute the environment seriously. With the improvement of human environmental protection consciousness, people urgently need to find environmental protection and pollution-free solutions to solve the problem of adipic acid production.

In recent years, Cao Fabin, a scholar, has proposed that adipic acid is used as catalyst to synthesize adipic acid, according to previous experience, he uses tungstic acid and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to make an acidic additive of tungstic acid, in the absence of organic solvent and phase transfer agent, catalyzed 30% hydrogen peroxide oxidation of cyclohexanol to synthetic adipic acid. In the research process, Cao Fabin also found that the addition of suitable active agents could help catalyze the catalytic effect of tungstic acid. After comparing the inorganic substances such as phosphoric acid, phosphorous acid, oxalic acid, resorcinol, sulfonic acid and salicylic acid, he thought that it was most suitable for adding sulfonic acid to an acidic additive of tungstic acid.

The final result shows that when the amount of tungstic acid is 2.5mmol, tungstic acid: acid additive: cyclohexanol: when hydrogen peroxide is 1:1:40:176 (molar ratio), in acid additive, the effect of cyclohexanol oxidation with sulfonic acid and salicylic acid is the best, the yield of reactive adipic acid was 87.8% and the purity was 99.9%. It is worth mentioning that, after the synthesis of adipic acid, acid sulfonic acid and salicylic acid can be put into production again and reused fifth times. The yield of adipic acid separation is still up to 81.5%.

China is a major producer of tungsten, it is feasible to produce an acidic additive of tungstic acid to realize the scale production of adipic acid, using tungstic acid catalyst cyclohexanol method not only has high efficiency, but also to achieve cost control, more importantly is environment friendly. Environmental protection is increasingly valued, enterprises can reduce investment in environmental protection because of the new process, and achieve benefits.

Why Sodium Silicate Is The Most Common Inhibitor of Scheelite Flotation

There are many inhibitors of scheelite flotation, but the most popular and widely used is sodium silicate, which is recognized by industry as the most effective and cost effective inhibitor.

Sodium silicate, commonly known as water glass, the molecular formula Na2SiO3 is a water-soluble silicate, is a kind of mineral binder, non-sulfide ore, especially a typical inhibitor of silicate minerals. Sodium silicate is selected in the floating scheelite and playing two main functions: one is to make the silica gel modified by physical adsorption on mineral surface, two is the adsorption of SiO32-, HSiO3-, OH- and H+ on the surface of quartz and silicate minerals, which increases the electronegativity and hydrophilicity of the mineral surface.

In scheelite flotation process, sodium silicate was inhibited in quartz, calcite and silicate, generally speaking, sodium silicate is selective when used in low dosage, but using too much will lose the selectivity.

Therefore, in order to deal with the complex components of scheelite, people will find helper for sodium silicate, and achieve the ideal effect through the collocation of flotation. The main auxiliary of sodium silicate mainly has the following three members:

1. Metal ions such as AL3+, Mg2+, Cu2+, Fe2+, Ca2+, the combination of sodium silicate with these multivalent metal cations can be effective for fluorite and calcite, the main reason is that sodium silicate and metal cation form metal silicate colloid, and the selectivity of adsorption is enhanced.

2. Sodium silicate combined with Na2CO3. This combination can be used for the separation of scheelite from silicate minerals, its main function is CO32-, HCO3- can be preferentially adsorbed to the surface of calcium minerals, prevent the adsorption of sodium silicate, moreover, silicate minerals can be strongly inhibited by sodium silicate.

3. Temperature. The pulp heated 60-80 °C, can be used for separation of scheelite and calcite, the reason is that the sodium silicate can selectively remove the oleate anion on the calcite surface after heating.

Thus, in the process of scheelite flotation, how to use sodium silicate inhibitors is also a skill, whether it is heated flotation or room temperature flotation, according to the characteristics of sodium silicate can make scheelite flotation to achieve a multiplier effect.

Nano Cesium Tungsten Bronze Preparation by Solvothermal Method

Cesium tungsten bronze (CsxWO3) is synthesized by solid phase method or liquid phase method with cesium carbonate and sodium tungstate as raw materials.

Therefore, cesium tungsten bronze is also called cesium tungstate. Cesium tungsten bronze CsxWO3 has the function of oxygen compounds in eight face special structure, with low resistivity and low temperature superconducting propertiesaterials. It mainly used to make high-temperature insulation coating, building glass, Low-E glass, automobile insulation film, plant planting shed, LCD screen and so on.

Synthetic of cesium tungsten bronze can be obtained by solid phase method and liquid phase method. In the earlier period, most of cesium tungsten bronze was prepared by solid phase synthesis, such as vapor phase reduction and hydrogen reduction, but the synthesis of solid phase is difficult and the cost is too high. Therefore, with the increasing attention of cesium tungsten bronze, more and more scholars began to study the liquid phase preparation of cesium tungsten bronze and find a way to reduce the manufacturing cost.

Scholars dissolved 400kg sorbitol in a jacketed reactor and dissolved it into tungstate and cesium sulfate, the ratio of the mass ratio of tungstic acid to cesium sulfate is 1 : 0.33, the quality of sorbitol is 3 times the total mass of tungstic acid and cesium sulfate, after high speed stirring 30 min, pump into homogeneous machine to carry on the cycle homogenization, after 60 min, the product is pumped into the high temperature reactor which has been heated to 150 °C, and the high pressure reactor speed is set to 180 r/min. When the above material is completely transferred to the autoclave, turn off the valve of the high-pressure reactor, gradually increase the temperature of the reactor to 350 degrees, and keep 600 min for 150 degrees, release the reaction product, adding deionized water to the filter press, washing with deionized water and absolute ethanol until the sulfate content is below 100 mg/kg, and the content of ethanol is more than 80%, the filter cake is placed in a vacuum oven for drying, and then mechanical pulverization and air flow grinding are carried out to obtain the target product - dark blue cesium tungsten bronze nanometer powder.

The cesium tungsten bronze nano-slurry was added to the acrylic emulsion to coat the film, and the functional film with excellent transparent insulation performance was obtained. The results show that the nanometer tungsten bronze powder with good quality can be prepared by solvothermal method. The transmittance of the functional thermal barrier film at 950 nm is 9.2%, the transmittance of visible light at 550nm is 71%, fog is 0.5%, and the film has excellent infrared absorption characteristics, and it is an excellent transparent thermal insulation material.

Unfortunately, scholars do not seem to solve the cost problem of cesium tungsten bronze by using solvent method. Moreover, the organic solvents in solvent thermal process are volatile and the production process will cause environmental pollution. However, it is certain that the quality of cesium tungsten bronze prepared by solvothermal method is better than hydrothermal method. The results show that the nano cesium tungsten bronze film prepared by solvothermal method not only has good heat insulation effect, but also has a long service life, and the service life is more than 20 years.

Cesium Tungsten Bronze Preparation by Heat Insulation Film

Cesium tungsten bronze (CsxWO3) is a kind of tungstate powder synthesized by solid phase method or liquid phase method with cesium carbonate and sodium tungstate as raw materials.

Cesium tungsten bronze is also called cesium tungstate. As everyone knows, the sun's heat is mainly concentrated in the two part of the visible light and near infrared light, cesium tungsten bronze CsxWO3 particles can ensure good visible light transmittance, and can cover most of the near infrared caused by heat, and cesium tungsten bronze is an ideal material for manufacturing automotive insulation film.

However, in the manufacture of cesium tungsten bronze CsxWO3 heat insulation film, it is found that CsxWO3 particles are difficult to disperse in solution, and attached to the heat insulation film. In order to realize the near infrared shielding function of cesium tungsten bronze CsxWO3 particles, the dispersion and stability of particles in slurry must be improved, particle dispersion is enhanced by ball milling, ultrasonic addition, dispersant and surface modification.

Some scholars use polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) of the three kinds of membrane material to test cesium tungsten bronze heat insulation film preparation. After the Cs0.33WO3 slurry was obtained by hydrothermal method, the slurry was added into the 15L film solution after 3 hours ball milling and 20 minute ultrasonic wave addition,  at 80 °C, the water was mixed with 10min. Then, the foam 1% was added and the mixture was heated and stirred 20min, finally, three different materials of PVA, PVB, PVP cesium tungsten bronze coating film were prepared.

The results show that the average particle size of Cs0.33WO3 particles decreases after milling 3H with water as solvent. At the same time, the dispersion stability has been greatly improved. After adding polyethylene glycol - 400, the stability of cesium tungsten bronze particle dispersion is further improved, showing excellent near infrared shielding performance, through the transverse contrast of three kinds of film materials, scholars believe that PVA and PVP are Cs0.33WO3 coatings for film-forming substances has good transmittance of visible light and near infrared shielding property, at the same time, the cesium tungsten bronze coating with PVP as film forming material has the best adhesion strength.
