Acetaldehyde was first prepared by Scheele in 1774, by the action of manganese dioxide (MnO2) and sulfuric acid (H2SO4) on ethyl alcohol (ethanol, CH3CH2OH). CH3CH2OH + [O] → CH3CH=O + H2O Commercially, passing alcohol vapors and preheated air over a silver catalyst at 480oC carries out the oxidation. With a multitubular reactor, conversions of 74 to 82 percent per pass can be obtained while generating steam to be used elsewhere in the process. The formation of acetaldehyde by the addition of water to acetylene was observed by Kutscherow in 1881.
In the case of liquid-phase reactions in which oxidation is secured by means of atmospheric oxygen—for example, the oxidation of liquid hydrocarbons to fatty acids—special means must be provided to secure adequate mixing and contact of the two immiscible phases of gaseous oxidizing agent and the liquid being oxidized. Although temperature must be controlled and heat removed, the requirements are not severe, since the temperatures are generally low and the rate of heat generation controllable by regulation of the rate of air admission.
Furthermore, the smoothness of the reaction depends on the dispersion of the reacting material as it comes in contact with the change in the nitration vessel so that a fairly uniform temperature is maintained throughout the vessel. Nitration vessels are usually equipped with one of three general types of agitating mechanism: (1) single or double impeller, (2) propeller or turbine, with cooling sleeve, and (3) outside tunnel circulation. The single-impeller agitator consists of one vertical shaft containing horizontal arms.
