This project aims the selective hydrogenation of alkynes using flow microrreactores in the presence of a catalyst and in combination with microwave and ultrasound. The work carried out in the University of Alicante will focus on the optimization of the reaction using COMSOL Multiphysics simulation conditions. The study parameters include the type of two-phase flow, the associated transport phenomena, Kinetics and distribution of reaction products, the effect of ultrasonic and acoustic field, etc. The work also includes the preparation of catalysts supported or not, and the experimental verification, to the extent possible, of the results of the simulation.
