Production Processes:

  • Production of 3-(Methylmercapto)propionaldehyde from Methionine; from Methanethiol and Acrolein

A liquid substrate mixture containing methyl mercaptan and a catalyst reacts with the acrolein feed stream in the contact zone. Thus, the product mixture is subjected to a fraction further to get the desired methional. The non-condensable gas is recycled and sent to the contact zone, making this process a continuous preparation.
