What is atom economy?
When calculating the atom economy of a chemical reaction, what is the maximum value that can be obtained?
Why do companies tend to prefer processes with higher atom economies?
In the production of hydrogen gas from methane gas, the following reaction occurs:
CH₄ (g) + H₂O (g) → CO (g) + 3H₂ (g)
Calculate the atom economy of this reaction.
Sulfuric acid can be produced from sulfur dioxide, which you can see in the following equations:
2SO₂ (g) + O₂ (g) → 2SO₃ (g)
SO₃ (g) + H₂O (l) → H₂SO₄ (aq)
Calculate the atom economy for the production of sulfuric acid from sulfur dioxide.
