Homogeneous Catalysis of Gaseous Reactions

Article metrics


A SHORT time ago it was shown that the decomposition of di-isopropyl ether in the gaseous state is subject to a remarkable catalytic influence of iodine. The course of this reaction, which is homogeneous, and quite distinct from that of the uncatalysed reaction taking place at higher temperatures, can be represented by the equation
