    • Abstract

       

      Sulphonated styrene-divinylbenzene resins with various cross-linking have been synthesized and the dehydration of 2-butanol has been studied on these acid catalysts. The pore structure of the resin controls the rate of dehydration. Thecis totrans ratio of the 2-butene formed indicate that the resin catalysts behave like aqueous solution of acids, i.e.dissociated protons are responsible for catalysis.
