The direct hydration of camphene to isoborneol has been studied in the presence of strong acidic cation exchange resins as catalyst. The effect of various parameters such as temperature, catalyst loading, mass ratio of the reactants, and reaction time on the conversion of camphene was investigated to optimize the reaction conditions. Based on the optimized reaction conditions, a novel pilot-scale jet reactor was used to study the direct hydration of camphene. The kinetic studies of direct hydration reaction have been discussed in detail. A pseudo-homogeneous (PH) model was used to correlate the experimental data in the temperature range from 353.15 K to 383.15 K. The kinetic parameters were evaluated, which made the calculated results in excellent agreement with the experimental results.

Keywords: isoborneol; camphene; direct hydration; kinetics; jet reactor
