|Client||A U.S. based catalyst company|
|Problem & Context||The client commissioned SPA to find prior art for a patent (subject patent) claiming a process of decreasing selectivity loss of catalyst used in a reactor for a petrochemical process by controlling the presence of water in the reactor.
There were many patents and references describing the use of the catalyst for the same process. However, most of them had mentioned that water vapor was supplied to increase the process efficiency.
