Optimization of Benzene Synthesis for Radiocarbon Dating by Response Surface Method
Kyung Yim Nah, Hyung Tae Kang, Seungwon Kim*, Sang Won Choi, Youn Sop Kim, Soonok Kim
Response surface method was applied to the predicting optimum conditions of benzene synthesis for radiocarbon dating. The weight of carbon dioxide, the temperature of lithium container for producing acetylene and the activation temperature of catalyst which was used for the cyclization of acetylene to benzene were used as experimental factors. The yields of benzene synthesis were measured from twelve experiments which were carried out under various experimental conditions. The polynomial equation was obtained by using three experimental factors and yields. The validity of polynomial equation was confirmed by comparing the calculated yields with the experimental ones.
