Tytan™ TIPT primarily serves as a catalyst for esterification, transesterification, and olefin polymerization processes. Additionally, it can be selectively employed as an adhesion promoter and cross-linking agent for hydroxylic compounds or in the formulation of heat and corrosion-resistant coatings. Notably, it offers higher efficiency in its various applications.

Technical Details & Test Data

Preparation of Bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate various catalysts at 200°C

This graph shows the influence on reaction rate of various catalysts at 200°C. Sulphuric acid is the most active, but at this temperature it causes significant charring of the reaction mixture. Methane sulphonic and p-toluene sulphonic acids also give a faster rate than titanates initially, but they are overtaken by the titanates later in the reaction and take much longer to reach 99% conversion. The tin compounds, stannous octoate and dibutyltin oxide, are considerably less cost-effective than any of the other catalysts.

Preparation of Bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate various catalysts at 220°C

Raising the reaction temperature to 220°C increases the effectiveness of the titanates more than that of the acid catalysts. Figure 2 shows that the "cross-over point" for TYTAN TIPT and methane sulphonic and p-toluene sulphonic acids is at 40-65% conversion compared with 83-93% at 200°C

Preparation of Bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate. Effect of temperature on TYTAN TIPT activity

The effect of temperature on the performance of Tytan™ TIPT is demonstrated more fully in Figure 3. Increasing the temperature from 180°C to 200°C gives a 50% decrease in the time required to reach 99.5% conversion. On raising the temperature from 200°C to 220°C there is again a 50% reduction in reaction time up to about 90% conversion, but at 99.5% conversion the time saving is only about 35%.
