Syllabus:

This course aims to establish fundamental knowledge of reaction engineering and kinetics for students in chemical engineering and pharmaceutical engineering. Chemical reactions occur in different phases including the gas phase, in solutions with different solvents, between interfaces including gas-solid and liquid-solid, and other interfaces in solid and liquid states. Presentation of the course starts by introducing the chemical reaction engineering algorithm and then utilises it to solve problems in both steady and unsteady state isothermal and nonisothermal reactors. Collection and analysis of reaction rate data, complex mechanisms and bioreactors are also discussed. At the end of the course catalysis is introduced as well as the effects of combined diffusion and reactions on catalyst particles.
