Where is LD 143 used?
- Description:Cyclohexane Production - Benzene hydrogenation
- Characteristics:Ni, Al2O3
LD 143 is a nickel-on-alumina catalyst used for the liquid-phase hydrogenation of benzene to cyclohexane. This catalyst is used in the fixed-bed finishing reactor of the Axens process.
LD 143 achieves the total hydrogenation of benzene with no formation of impurities, resulting in the production of high purity cyclohexane.
