Where is LD 271 used?
- Description: Selective hydrogenation - Butadiene hydrogenation with maximum 1-Butene yield
- Characteristics:Pd, Promotor, Al2O3
LD 271 is a promoted palladium-on-alumina catalyst used for selective hydrogenation of residual butadiene contained in raffinate cuts from butadiene extraction units.
LD 271 preserves 1-butene in the cut, preventing it from being isomerized into 2-butenes, even with butadiene removal down to 1 to 5 wt ppm.
