Description

Chemical Reaction Engineering is a complete book on how to answer reactor design questions reliably and effectively.

Summary Of The Book

Chemical Reaction Engineering emphasises on the qualitative arguments, simple design methods, graphical procedures, and frequent comparison of capabilities of major reactor types. This book pertains to the development of chemical reactions on a commercial scale. With an elementary description on the related topics, this book also covers an extended, elaborate, and complex idea of the subject. This helps students get an idea of the respective topics before moving on to the complex ones.

Chemical Reaction Engineering is divided into three parts. The first part of this book deals with Homogeneous Reactions in Ideal Reactors. In this part, the book elaborates the ideas of Reactor Design with a complete introduction to it. This part of the book also covers many other areas, like Design for Single Reactions, Design for Parallel Reactions, and Potpourri of Multiple Reactions. The second part of the book comprises an analysis on Non Ideal Flow in reactors. This part is further split into topics like Compartment Models, The Dispersion Model, and The Tank-in-Series Model in reactors. The third part of the book deals with Reactions Catalyzed by Solids in reactors.
