In the present work, an application of reactive chromatography and SMBR using ion exchange resin as a catalyst and adsorbent will be studied, which will be a new platform for production of industrial esters. Among numerous esters, this study focuses on the production of propylene glycol methyl ether acetate (DOWANOLTM PMA glycol ether acetate), one of the most commonly used esters with a high industrial demand. DOWANOLTM PMA glycol ether acetate is the second-most used propylene glycol ether with nearly 90% of its use in surface coatings.
