Hi,
ln the paper attached, we are given two reactions and l assumed they occur in series as cumene has to be a product in reaction 1, before it can be consumed as a reactant in reaction 2. The paper gives us the conversion, was wondering if this is the overall conversion of propylene consumption in two reactions. Also we are given selectivity, how do l implement selectivity in COCO?

Selectivity can be implemented easiest using the fixed conversion reactor.

Ok, so l have to do hand calculation to convert selectivity to conversion?

Well, if the reactions are in series, this is straight forward. If there is 99:1 cumene:DIPB, then the follow-up reaction occurs to the extent of 1%, so the conversion of the follow-up reaction is 1%.
