A novel experimental teaching system of tubular furnace catalytic reaction based on "ethanol catalytic dehydration reaction" has been developed. The selection of the reaction system and catalysts, the determination of gas chromatography analytical conditions and the reform of pipeline were studied. It is showed that the ethanol catalytic dehydration reaction in tubular furnace is a highly efficient, stable, cost-effective and low energy consumption green process. This experimental teaching system conforms to the trend toward the green chemical process, thus is suitable for laboratory teaching of chemical engineering majors.

Key words: Teaching experiment, Catalytic reaction, Ethanol dehydration, Green process
