Abstract

A discussion covers a previous comment by Ellington et al. regarding a marked enhancement of the rate constants in the vicinity of the critical point of CO2 for the esterification of phthalic anhydride with methanol in supercritical CO2; the present comment of Toh et al. regarding the semi-empirical equation based on transition-state theory, including the local composition effect; and Brennecke's response on the comment.
