In heterogeneous liquid-liquid reaction processes, explosions have been reported. An aim of this study is to simulate the accident stories, which might be caused by inappropriate mixing conditions in the heterogeneous reaction process. The reaction of water-insoluble anhydride and water was selected as a model process. The experimental trend data of droplet size with agitation in a batch reactor were fitted to an empirical equation. The good fittings show the applicability of the equation in our reaction conditions. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
