The upper limit of storage is due to the not entirely avoidable chemical change of the stored mixture and is in particular at most 4 weeks, preferably at most 3 weeks, especially at most 2 weeks. This results in a particularly low content of aromatic halogen compounds in the resulting mixture. The method of claim 1 1 or 12, wherein at least one mixture F1 is recycled to at least one column K2 for the separation by distillation of a mixture M and used in step (d). The acid-catalyzed preparation of methylenediphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) from aniline and formaldehyde is known and initially leads to a complex mixture of polyamines, which is subsequently reacted with phosgene. For the purpose of evaporation of the substance mixture to be separated, an evaporator can be arranged below the bottom of the rectification column. By selecting the proportions of aniline, formaldehyde and mineral acid and the temperature and residence time conditions, the proportions of 4,4'-methylenediphenyldiamine and its isomers and homologs can be controlled. ACD is a two-step process: the first phase is induction of specialized immunological memory in an individual by exposure to an allergen; the second phase is elicitation -- the production of a cell-mediated allergic response by re-exposure of a sensitized individual to an allergen. One usually distinguishes three types of separating elements. Particularly preferably, at least one mixture F1 is recycled to the above-described column K2 for the distillative separation of the mixture M and used in the course of step (d). to silica, welding emissions, and methylene diphenyl diisocyanate during water heater manufacturing.
