AnnotationA mathematical model has been constructed based on an experimentally developed scheme of chemical transformations in the synthesis of methyl tert-butyl ether by intermolecular dehydration of tert-butanol with methanol using a HY zeolite catalyst with a hierarchical structure [1]. The mathematical model is based on the law of active surfaces, taking into account the processes of adsorption and desorption on the catalyst surface. The solution of the inverse problem in the form of a global optimization problem made it possible to determine the kinetic constants.
