Printed Thesis Information:


The production of phosgene typically involves the gas phase reaction between carbon monoxide (CO) and dichlorine (Cl2) in the presence of an activated carbon catalyst. The first stage of the study investigated the kinetics of phosgene formation over a high surface area carbon catalyst. This included determining a rate law and an activation energy for the reaction. A reaction mechanism is proposed based on the experimental observations.
