Patent
Celanese International Corporation | Date: 2017-03-08

A process is disclosed for producing ethanol, comprising contacting acetic acid and hydrogen in a reactor in the presence of a catalyst comprising a binder and a mixed oxide comprising cobalt and preferably tin, wherein the mixed oxide is present in an amount from 60 to 90 wt.%, based on the total weight of the catalyst.

Process for producing acetic acid is disclosed in which the reaction medium is separated into a liquid recycle and a vapor product stream including acetic acid, methyl iodide, methyl acetate and water in a flash vessel. The vapor product stream is condensed into a liquid stream that is enriched in acetic acid and this liquid stream is further sent to the distillation columns to recover acetic acid. The process advantageously improves the capacity of the acetic acid production while reducing the amount of acetic acid that is recycled.

A cellulose acetate lacquer composition comprises a film forming composition and a diluent. The film forming compositions comprise cellulose acetate, a plasticizer, a secondary film former, and at least one organic solvent. The lacquer compositions may be used in a method of providing a finish or protective cover on at least a portion of a substrate. The method comprises applying the lacquer composition to an inner or exterior surface of the substrate.

A polymer dispersion is produced by polymerization of at least two different ethylenically unsaturated monomers in at least first and second stages. The polymer produced in the first stage comprises 25 to 60% by weight of the total monomer composition and has a uniform glass transition temperature from -30C to 0C. The polymer produced in the second stage comprises 40 to 75% by weight of the total monomer composition and has a variable monomer composition such that the second stage polymer has a non-uniform glass transition temperature which varies between a first value from -30 to +10C and second value of at least +70C. Any polymer produced in further polymerization stages comprises no more than 10% by weight of the total monomer composition and the glass transition temperature of the hypothetical uniform copolymer produced by the total monomer composition is in the range from 0C to 25 C.


Patent
Celanese Corporation | Date: 2016-03-17

A process for producing acetic acid is disclosed in which the water concentration is controlled in the side stream between two columns. Controlling the water concentration by the liquid light phase recycle controls the hydrogen iodide concentration in the side stream to be less than 50 wppm.


Patent
Celanese Corporation | Date: 2016-04-04

A process for producing acetic acid is disclosed in which the methyl iodide concentration is maintained in the vapor product stream formed in a flashing step. The methyl iodide concentration in the vapor product stream ranges from 24 to less than 36 wt. % methyl iodide, based on the weight of the vapor product stream. In addition, the acetaldehyde concentration is maintained within the range from 0.005 to 1 wt. % in the vapor product stream. The vapor product stream is distilled in a first column to obtain an acetic acid product stream comprising acetic acid and up to 300 wppm hydrogen iodide and/or from 0.1 to 6 wt. % methyl iodide and an overhead stream comprising methyl iodide, water and methyl acetate.


A process is disclosed for producing ethanol, comprising contacting hydrogen and a feed stream comprising acetic acid in a reactor in the presence of a catalyst comprising a binder and a mixed oxide comprising a promoter metal and tin, and preferably also comprising cobalt. The promoter metal is selected from the group consisting of rhenium, ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium, platinum, and combinations thereof. The feed stream may comprises pure acetic acid or may comprise a mixture of 50 to 95 wt. % acetic acid and 5 to 50 wt. % ethyl acetate.


Patent
Celanese Corporation | Date: 2016-09-20

Anti-fog compositions comprising a primary film having opposing major planar surfaces and a central coplanar region disposed between the opposing major planar surfaces and comprising cellulose acetate and a plasticizer. The cellulose acetate may have a degree of substitution less than 2.6. The plasticizer may be selected from the group consisting of 1,2,3-triacetoxypropane (triacetin), tributyl citrate, triethyl citrate, triphenyl phosphate, tris(clorisopropyl)phosphate, dimethyl phthalate, diethyl phthalate, bornan-2-one, PEG-DGE, PPG-DGE, tributyl phosphate, and combinations thereof. The primary film has a thickness greater than 90 microns.


Patent
Celanese Corporation | Date: 2016-09-22

An agricultural spray pre-mix composition, comprising from 0.01 wt % to 40 wt % of an agricultural spray adjuvant comprising a vinyl ester-based or vinyl acrylate-based polymer dispersion and greater than 15 wt % of a plasticizer and from 1 wt % to 50 wt % of a water conditioning agent.
