Title:
THERMAL CONVERSION OF VOLATILE FATTY ACID SALTS TO KETONES
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO1999000348
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
This invention provides a method for thermally converting volatile fatty acid (VFA) salts to ketones by mixing dry calcium salts of VFAs with hot heat transfer agent in an evacuated container, thereby causing thermal decomposition of the calcium salts of VFAs to form ketone-containing vapor and calcium carbonate; and separating the ketone-containing vapor from the calcium carbonate and heat transfer agent by condensing a mixture of ketones from the ketone-containing vapor.
