The invention relates to a method and apparatus for obtaining monocarbonic what means can selectively oxidize carbohydrates. These methods of preparation, however, have significant drawbacks. First, the reproduction of microorganisms or getting biocatalysts fraught with considerable difficulties. The ways of getting mainly include fermentation (for example, in the process of getting gluconic acid), so that the use of nutrient salts in the fermentation solution leads to a significant downloads salts. Another disadvantage is the requirement of sterility work, often required for these processes, so it is associated with significant cost of the equipment.

Of particular importance is heterogeneous catalytic oxidation on noble metals of the 8th subgroup of the Periodic table of elements deposited on appropriate substrates. This scheme can be performed in the oxidation of glucose to gluconic acid, such as Pt/C catalysts. However, the disadvantage of this method of obtaining a sharp decrease in the selectivity of the reaction and rapid deactivation of the catalyst (see "Ullmanns Enzyklopadie der Technischen Chemie", 4 th newly revised edition, vol. 24, page 785, Verlag Chemie (1983).

Similar problems are observed in the oxidation of sucrose. Harry and Paulsen already investigated this reaction on platinum catalysts (K. Soedinenii, which due to the existing difficulties there are no data on their chemical structure and composition.

From the patent EP N 0040709 B1 is known a method of obtaining diacetonitrile acid, in particular, decatanzaro oxidize and produce by electrodialysis. In this case, carry out periodic way and, thanks to the introduction of protective groups, the source is derived contains only one oxidizable group.

From patents DE 3803465 A1, DE 3916206 A1 and US - PS 4985553 known various periodic methods, which are quantitatively unacceptable degree of conversion or the mixture of products containing unacceptable amounts of pollution. In some cases, it was proposed to carry out the selection of product expensive purification methods.

In the patent EP 2181501 on the method of catalytic oxidation of sucrose, clearly note that with periodic way multiple oxidation products are obtained in large scale.

Attempts selective oxidation of sucrose traditional ways only one primary OH group had no success.

In addition to 3-m possible monocarboxylic acids obtained by oxidation of primary OH-groups in the mixture with the specified without specific details, that leads to a significant loss of the final product and a significant decrease in the selectivity of the reaction towards formation of monocarboxylic acids (Les A. Edye, George V. Meehan, Geoffrey N. Kichards, Platinum catalyst oxidation of sucrose. J. Carbohydrate Chemistry, 10 (1), 11-23 (1991)).

The same is observed in the case of recovery of sugars, for example, that shown by tests on palatinose (Dissertation H. Puke, T. U Braunschweig).

The aim of the invention is the oxidation of carbohydrates, derivatives of carbohydrates and primary alcohols with the best selectivity for minoocycline products.

This goal is achieved by the fact that carbohydrates, derivatives of carbohydrates or primary alcohols continuously oxidized in an aqueous solution with a concentration of from 0.1 to 60% oxygen or oxygen-containing gases on the catalyst based on a noble metal or mixed metal catalysts, flow thus obtained products are sent to stage electrodialysis and allocate target monocarboxylic acid.

This method is especially suitable for obtaining minoocycline oxidation products of carbohydrates, derivatives of carbohydrates and primary alcohols. Tech continuous and simultaneous selection of products on the changes of carbohydrates and their derivatives or primary alcohols. At the same time is possible high output volume-time.

Special funktsionalizirovannyi saccharides and derivatives of saccharides, which prevail among the source materials is of considerable industrial interest from the point of view of synthesis of hydrophilic constituent units for the polymer and surfactants carbohydrate origin.

Thanks to its environmentally preferable properties, these source materials have advantages over synthetic products.

Especially effective if the substance remaining after stage electrodialysis and removal of monocarboxylic acids, again are passed once through a stage of oxidation. In this way we get a continuous loop and is especially effective educts.

Advantageously, if the flow of the original substances prior to introduction into the catalytic layer is enriched free from air bubbles, so that there is enough oxygen for oxidation reactions.

This invention relates to a continuous method, in which carbohydrates or their derivatives can be selectively converted into monocarboxylate in the about precious metal or mixed metal catalysts. The latter are also suitable, but from the point of view of recyclization catalysts based on noble metals with a catalytically active element are preferred.

Formed in the oxidation process monocarboxylic acid is then continuously removed from the reaction mixture using the second stage of the process - stage electrodialysis. Specified, is still nowhere to be described, the combination of stages, ongoing oxidation with almost continuous removal of the formed oxidation products is suitable, in particular, to obtain monocarboxylic acids from carbohydrates and their derivatives. In this way implements a higher rate of conversion than described on ways today, and selectivity, from the point of view of education monocarboxylic acids, unexpectedly higher than 95%.

Continuous oxidation by the present method is as follows:

a) the Reaction system consists of a node passing the gas (the vessel with stirrer) with a tubular reactor, in which is placed a fixed catalyst bed. Stage passing the gas can in particular be carried out in a mixing vessel (reactor with a stirrer). In the reactor with mesalc is Kim partial pressure of oxygen or pure oxygen in the form of melkodispersionnyh bubbles or free from bubbles through special hoses) for introducing gas under pressure or without pressure. The specified reactor with a stirrer connected to a tubular reactor, installed in parallel (above or below potential flow), which is the actual oxidation in contact with the catalyst.

b) Oxidation can also be performed with suspended catalysts (suspension method) in a mixing vessel, coupled with electrodialysis installation using a single node. In the simplest case, this can be used desantiruemye centrifuge or modules with cross-over.

Technological solution to this problem is also feasible with the use of appropriate systems holding, such as filter backwashing, separators, etc.

Suitable is the use of catalysts based on noble metal or mixed metal catalysts that can be used, for example, in the form of extrudates (C), oxides), fibers, pellets or powder. If you are using catalysts based on noble metals, the proportion of the metal should be 0.1 - 10%. Especially good results were achieved with Pt-catalysts, which had a Pt content of only 1% and were in the form of a powder, from which, however, milked the m electrodialysis installation on the side of dilution, so oxidized products migrate to concentrate when a voltage is applied and then removed from the reaction system. In order to maintain the equilibrium state of the continuously operating the reaction system, the amount that is removed from concentrate is dosed into the reactor with a stirrer in a controlled way with the compensation quantity of the extracted solution.

Mixed metal catalysts are, for example, such as supplied by the company Degussa AG and described in the article by K. Deller and B. Despeyroux in: "Catalysis of organic reaction" (1992).

Especially acceptable device for implementing the method according to the invention characterized in that it comprises, connected in series, the node passing the gas, the site of oxidation and site electrodialysis.

In order to provide accurate control of the quantity of substances handled in some cases, particularly preferably, if there is a branch line parallel to the stage electrodialysis.

With this additional parallel line is kind of bypass (bypass) line parallel to the stage electrodialysis. Together with the appropriate devices to control the flow or pumps can number on stage electrodialysis only to such extent, in which they can be processed and unprocessed number immediately returned to the step of passing the gas again through the bypass line. At each stage so processed strictly optimal amount of substance.

Name three possible sucrose-monocarboxylic acids in this description are used only in abbreviated form. Full names, together with the names of two other products, also listed below, are the following:

C6-sucrose-monocarboxylic acid: 1-0-(-D - fructofuranosyl) --D - glucopyranoside;

C1-sucrose-monocarboxylic acid: 2-keto-2-0-( -D- -glyukopiranozil) --D - glucofuranose acid;

C6-sucrose-monocarboxylic acid: 1-0-( -D - fructofuranosyl) --D - glucopyranoside;

C1-oxidized GMF: 5-(-D - glyukopiranozil-oxymethyl)-furan-2-carboxylic acid;

C6-oxidized GMF: 5-(-D - glucopyranosyl-oxymethyl)-furfural.

The device for implementing the method explained below in detail using the drawings, and particularly preferred settings.

Fig. 1 shows a preferred variant of the technological scheme according to the invention;

Fig. 2 is Gras is t an alternative variant of the invention in relation to Fig. 1.

The scheme shown in Fig. 1 shows a vessel with a stirrer or tank 10 with a stirrer 11 and El. the engine 12 to the mixer 11. Shown schematically introduction into the vessel 10 selected substances through 15, figure 17 indicated pH meter, 18 - data that goes to thermostat, and 19 - data incoming from the last. In addition, the air (N2/O2) is fed into the tank 10 through 21.

After stirring in a vessel with stirrer output material with controlled pH, such as a carbohydrate, which is enriched and mixed with oxygen, served one of the pumps, denoted by P, to the stage of oxidation of 30. Specified by the acidification stage 30 contains a catalyst based on a noble metal or mixed metal catalyst, in this case Pt-catalyst C-substrate. At the stage of oxidation 30 is continuous oxidation of the source material; the latter is then passed through several pumps, denoted by P, on stage electrodialysis 40. Last, ED-block or electrodialyzer, also shown only schematically. Here monocarboxylic acid is derived continuously from the partially oxidized mixture, namely, along the line indicated as 41, which also set the measuring cell electrade on line 43 again into the vessel 10 for further processing in addition to the displayed product 15, which in any case they correspond chemically.

Monocarboxylic acid after passing through the measuring cell conductivity 42 serves in the capacity of 50 here and concentrate. In the vessel 50 is continuously measure pH, indicated by the numeral 51. The product shown here through the output 52, then through the output 53 unloaded product is returned again to the stage electrodialysis pump P.

Fig. 4 shows a process flowchart corresponding to almost all parts of the circuit of Fig. 1. In additional line 60 provides a by-pass line between the output stage of oxidation 30 and the return line 43 from the stage electrodialysis in the tank 10.

This line 60 is here purely schematic; it may contain additional capacity, measuring devices, pumps and controls flow.

The pump P, which are available in the variant according to Fig. 1, alone or with the above elements is capable of feeding from the stage 30 on stage electrodialysis 40 only such quantities of substances that can be optimally processed here. Excess can be returned through the bypass line, line 60, again on stage ol CLASS="ptx2">

As an example here would be considered unrestored disaccharide sucrose, which can turn selectively into the corresponding monocarboxylic acid is shown in the device described manner.

Although the molecule contains three reactive primary hydroxy-group, in each case, the oxidation of only one of these groups, so that one obtains exclusively minoocycline derivatives of sucrose. Selectivity for these products comes at least 95%, and when using this continuous method is not observed the formation of di - or tricarboxylic acid.

In addition to high selectivity for this continuous method, in comparison with a periodic way, you may experience a significant increase in the reaction rate. The advantage of the method according to the invention in respect of reactivity to glucose and sucrose confirmed, compared with the periodic method of Fig. 2 and Fig. 3.

In Fig. 2 and 3, in each case the horizontal axis is marked time in minutes; the vertical axis is the rate of conversion in percent. Graphically in each case marks the data of the periodic process of Fig. 2 for the year 3 for sucrose. In Fig. 3 in addition presents a continuous process with pure oxygen (O2).

Further increase in the reaction rate, from the point of view of education monocarboxylic acids, can be reached by increasing the partial pressure of oxygen in solution, for example, with the introduction of pure oxygen (instead of air or oxygen-nitrogen mixtures).

An additional advantage of this method of the invention is that it is not observed desactivate catalyst, which usually occurs when periodic work (compare K. Heyns, H. Paulsen; H. Puke, Dissertation TU Braunschweig). Even with the introduction of pure oxygen decontamination unexpectedly has no place. This advantage is not described in the literature, and is a great advantage from the point of view of technology, with the selective conversion of carbohydrates.

The method can be easily applied for the recovery of sugars, such as, for example, palatinose and glucose.

The selectivity towards specific products minoocycline can be adjusted by selection of appropriate catalysts, or using specific substrates or catalysts based on mixed Mazomanie one particular catalysts based on noble metal (for example, Pt/Al2O3(1% Pt), the firm Aldrich, in which Al2O3is used as the substrate to oxidize the primary OH-group in the 6'-position to the maximum extent.

In this case established that, despite the possibility of formation of dicarboxylic acid, obtained exclusively monocarboxylic acid. In addition, you can observe that this method selectivity can be influenced by the choice of the catalyst so that the oxidation unexpectedly leads mainly to only one oxidation product.

Experiments with other catalysts also showed that not only the selectivity in respect of monocyclic, but also the selectivity for the desired product may be regulated in this way. The method is not only suitable for the oxidation of sugars, but it is also possible to turn polyalcohols, xylytol (for example, isomalt) in the appropriate monocellate.

You can also oxidize derivatives of carbohydrates, such as, for example, glucoronosyltransferase, so that on the one hand, 6'-position, and on the other hand, the aldehyde functional group into relevant groups monocarboxylic acid.

While the purpose ground receiving stations group, similarly receive the products, which contain a carboxyl group exclusively in C6'-position. The aldehyde function is stored in these compounds.

This method can be oxidized similar Alkylglucoside or mixture, such as, for example, alkylpolyglycoside.

The examples show that the described method is suitable for the oxidation of the aldehyde and a primary hydroxyl functional groups in order to get minoocycline products. The substance used, mainly from the class of carbohydrates should be soluble in water or in mixtures of water and organic solvents (for example, mixtures of water/isopropanol) and not flying in the conditions of the experiments. In the case of substances from neaglewood" method is applicable to obtain minoocycline products (e.g., propanol to propionic acid, provided that they are (even partially) soluble in the described environment.

Oxidation takes place at temperatures from 0oup to 80oC, preferably, however, at 20o- 60oC. the Concentration of the substance can vary from 0.1 to 60%, but preferably in the range from 3 to 20%. The pH value can be adjusted in the range from 1 the clients".

To highlight monocarboxylic acid by electrodialysis can be used ion-exchange membranes. In this case, however, the free acid can be obtained only at low pH values. Despite the neutral conditions, however, in this case is allocated a large part of the Na-salts of monocarboxylic acids.

If the electrodialysis is performed with bipolar membranes, the neutralizing agent can be regenerated again and additionally get monocarboxylic acid from the corresponding starting materials. Although the use of bipolar membranes is associated with higher investment, the economic factor, however, must be validated each time, including processing, including subsequent operations.

Comparative experiments with periodic way clearly show the advantages of the method according to the invention. In the case of periodic testing of the reaction rate are significantly lower. In the case of comparative experiments selectivity towards monocarboxylate sharply reduced, and largely are by-products that are not accurately identified.

In the case of a continuous method of operation, desactivate deactivation of the catalyst takes place already after a short time, as already described in the literature.

To effect the oxidation device is used with the circulation shown in Fig. 1. The transmission of gas takes place in the mix cylindrical double-walled reactor (500 ml) with stirring over frittoli base. A glass plate is used as a relaxation zone, from which part of the flow is supplied by the centrifugal pump through the catalytic layer, which is placed in a glass column, closed two Frits. After passing through the fixed layer, this portion of the stream enters electrodialyzer and after separation of the oxidation products are then returned to the reactor with stirrer. The product is discharged through a concentrated series of electrodialyzer and the equivalent quantity of a solution of the original substance is dosed into the reactor with stirrer adjustable manner by means of a sleeve of the pump. Loss solution in the course concentrated cycle covered by water.

Mixed metal catalysts are catalysts based on noble metals together with promoters, such as, for example, bismuth.

Subsequent reaction with monocarboxylic acids in this case are, however, in the course of these reactions are obtained significant amounts of side products. This disadvantage can be eliminated by using the method according to the invention. The resulting products are removed by electrodialysis directly after their formation and so long are in contact with the catalyst.
