Summary

This book is an introduction to the quantitative treatment of chemical reaction engineering. It is appropriate for a one-semester undergraduate (or first-year graduate)course. The text provides a balanced approach: first, it covers both homogeneous and heterogeneous reacting systems; second, it covers both chemical reaction engineering and chemical reactor engineering.

Features :

  • Each chapter contains numerous vignettes--discussions of real, commercial applications of molecules or analyses described in the text. The vignettes have no equivalent in competing texts and have been universally praised by reviewers.
  • The book takes a chemistry approach, as opposed to an engineering approach that treats chemistry as a black box.
  • Reviewers have praised the originality of the numerous example problems, most of which are drawn from real applications.
  • Accuracy has been thoroughly checked by an independent checker.
