Hydrogenation is a chemical reaction where an organic compound is treated with hydrogen typically in the presence of a catalyst. In the specialty chemical and pharmaceutical industries hydrogenation is typically carried out in a stirred tank reactor. Hydrogen gas is either sparged or entrained from the gas cap by a vortex. The performance of hydrogenation reactor depends on the gas-liquid mixing, mass transfer rates, and solid catalysts distribution. These factors directly depend on the power dissipation and mixing patterns generated by the impellers of the reactor. Thus, power dissipation and mixing patterns play a key role in determining the selectivity and yield of a reactor based hydrogenation process.
