The Extended History of PRICAT(TM) 468 for C4 Acetylene Hydrogenation

South Texas Section May 2011 Meeting
South Texas Section Webinar
Originally delivered May 5, 2011

Step three of the 'Eight Steps to Specify a Catalyst Bed' is selecting the catalyst. The process of developing and selecting catalysts is often shrouded in mystery. Examining the history of a product development can demystify the process. This is a story about the development of a selective hydrogenation catalyst, PRICATJM PD 468, presently in use for the conversion of vinyl acetylene to butadiene. This story will describe a sometimes personal history of a catalyst that had its roots in a failed project in the 80's, imaginative but unsuccessful efforts in the 90's, several false starts in the 00's, and finally success in 2010.
