Prerequisites: Graduate status OR Instructor Consent.
Development of rate equations and evaluation of parameters from data for homogeneous and heterogeneous reacting systems including catalytic reactions. Global rate equations with simultaneous heat/mass transfer with reaction. Use of transition state theory to understand and estimate rate parameters. Reactor design including changes in pressure through a reactor, non-isothermal effects, multiple reactions/reversible reactions, non-ideal flow regimes (one-dimensional models), reactor stability, and parameter sensitivity analysis.
