The influence of catalyst, solvent and temperature on the etherification of glycerol and ethylene glycol with isobutylene in the liquid phase catalysed by strong acid ion-exchange resins of Amberlyst type (Amberlyst 15 and 35), p-toluenesulfonic acid and by two large-pore zeolites H-Y and H-Beta was studied. Reactions were carried out in the temperature range from 50 to 90 °C at autogenous pressure in solvent (dioxane, dimethyl sulfoxide and sulfolane). The basic kinetic parameters for complex of 11 equilibrium reactions for glycerol and 5 equilibrium reactions for ethylene glycol were estimated. The highest conversion of glycerol was achieved on H-Beta, but on ...
