Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Alkylbenzene sulfonic acid (ASA) is a valuable petrochemical product that is obtained using a variety of technologies. The purpose of this article is to compare the designs of the film sulfonation reactors and choose the most optimal one. The calculations were made using non-stationary mathematical models. For calculations, data were taken from operating LAB sulfonation plants.
