Chemical Reaction Engineering: Essentials, Exercises and Examples (Paperback)Martin Schmal (author)
- We can order this
Chemical Reaction Engineering: Essentials, Exercises and Examples presents the essentials of kinetics, reactor design and chemical reaction engineering for undergraduate students. Concise and didactic in its approach, it features over 70 resolved examples and many exercises.
The work is organized in two parts: in the first part kinetics is presented focusing on the reaction rates, the influence of different variables and the determination of specific rate parameters for different reactions both homogeneous and heterogeneous. This section is complemented with the classical kinetic theory and in particular with many examples and exercises. The second part introduces students to the distinction between ideal and non-ideal reactors and presents the basic equations of batch and continuous ideal reactors, as well as specific isothermal and non-isothermal systems. The main emphasis however is on both qualitative and quantitative interpretation by comparing and combining reactors with and without diffusion and mass transfer effects, complemented with several examples and exercises. Finally, non-ideal and multiphase systems are presented, as well as specific topics of biomass thermal processes and heterogeneous reactor analyses. The work closes with a unique section on the application of theory in laboratory practice with kinetic and reactor
This textbook will be of great value to undergraduate and graduate students in chemical engineering as well as to graduate students in and researchers of kinetics and catalysis.

Martin Schmal's book on Heterogeneous Catalysis and its applications that appeared earlier aims at active researchers in the field, the present book on "Chemical Reaction Engineering" is intended for undergraduate students to teach them the basic concepts of kinetics and reactor design. [...]
I find this book very useful, in particular, from the point of view of a physical chemist whose expertise in reaction engineering is limited. Due to the familiar treatment of kinetics, this books represents an excellent entry into chemical engineering also for practitioners in other fields.
The didactic approach of the book allows one to enter easily into the field. It will be of great value for students, both undergraduate and graduate, not only in chemical engineering but also in other fields. It should not be missing on any chemical institute libraries' shelf.
