Chemical reaction engineering is concerned with the exploitation of chemical reactions on a commercial scale. It's 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.

An introductory text, emphasizing qualitative arguments, simple design methods, graphical procedures, and capabilities of major reactor types. Times is taken to discuss why certain assumptions are made, and to indicate the limitations of the treatment when applied to real situations. Coverage include homogeneous reactions in ideal reactors, flow patterns and nonideal flow, reactions catalyzed by solids, and biochemical reaction systems. This third edition contains some 400 problems, 75% of them new. Assumes background in elementary calculus and linear first-order differential equations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
