Sometimes the product (or one of the products) can be removed continuously from the reactor as the reaction progresses; for example, the product can be allowed to vaporize from a liquid-phase reaction mixture. Another way is to carry out the reaction in stages with intermediate separation of the products between each stage.
Increasing Conversion for Single Reversible Reactions
Maximum conversion is the equilibrium conversion, which cannot be exceeded even with a long residence time. However, options are available for increasing conversion.
