Rates of oxidation of dilute, aqueous solutions of acetic acid were measured at 252° to 286°C and 67 atm in liquid full and trickle-bed reactors packed with ferric oxide catalyst particles. Predicted global rates and conversions indicated that localized vaporization and liquid channeling could affect trickle-bed performance.
