About the Book :
Chemical reaction engineering is concerned with the exploitation of chemical reactions on a commercial scale. Its goal is the successful design and operation of chemical reactors. This text emphasizes qualitative arguments, simple design methods, graphical procedures, and frequent comparison of capabilities of the major reactor types. Simple ideas are treated first, and are then extended to the more complex.
Interesting Facts :
Emphasis is placed throughout on the development of common design strategy for all systems, homogeneous and heterogeneousThis edition features new topics on biochemical systems, reactors with fluidized solids, gas/liquid reactors, and more on non ideal flowThe book explains why certain assumptions are made, why an alternative approach is not used, and to indicate the limitations of the treatment when applied to real situations
