Organic Process Technology Valuation: Cyclohexanone Oxime Syntheses
Cannon, Kevin C.; Breen, Maureen P.
Journal of Chemical Education, v87 n1 p66-68 Jan 2010
Three contemporary processes for cyclohexanone oxime synthesis are evaluated in a case study. The case study introduces organic chemistry students to basic cost accounting to determine the most economical technology. Technical and financial aspects of these processes are evaluated with problem-based exercises that may be completed by students either individually or more effectively in groups.
