Consider two reactions for the production of ethanol C2H4 g H2O g
Consider two reactions for the production of ethanol:
C2H4(g) + H2O(g) → CH3CH2OH(l)
C2H6(g) + H2O(g) → CH3CH2OH(l) + H2(g)
Which would be more thermodynamically feasible? Why? Assume standard conditions and assume that ΔHo and ΔSo are temperature independent.
