Kinetics of the Homogeneous Reverse Water-Gas Shift Reaction at High Temperature
The high-temperature rate of reaction of the homogeneous, reverse water-gas shift reaction, rWGSR, has been evaluated in quartz reactors with rapid feed pre-heating at low-pressure and high-pressure conditions. The form of the power- law rate expression was consistent with the Bradford mechanism.
The Arrhenius expressions for the reaction rate constant corresponding to the empty reactor were in very good agreement with the low-pressure results of Graven and Long, but yielded rate constants roughly four times greater than those obtained in our packed reactor and those reported by Kochubei and Moin and by Tingey.
