The dehydrogenation of methanol on a silver catalyst was studied in a static microreactor at 376-457°C, with initial methanol partial pressures of 60-90 Torr. The apparent activation energy agrees well with literature data. The experimental data suggest that the static microreactor is a suitable means for the rapid acquisition of preliminary kinetic data.
