Case Study: Methyl Acetate
Here we briefly discuss results from a case study on methyl acetate RD, in which, based on detailed investigations of thermodynamics  and fluid dynamics , different process models were not only compared with each other but also with experimental data. Full details are reported by Moritz .
Methyl acetate production is often used as an example to demonstrate the advantages of RD processes . The basic set-up of the heterogeneously catalyzed methyl
