Fundamentals of chemical process engineering

Course contents
  • - Introduction and economic aspects of chemical process engineering
    - Chemical reactors (idealised reactor models, temperature control, output, stoichiometry, turnover, yield, selectivity, models)
    - Kinetics of homogeneous reactions (formal kinetic approaches, Arrhenius approach)
    - Kinetics of complex reactions (parallel, consecutive and equilibrium reactions)
    - Non-isothermal reactions
    - Evaluation of reaction kinetic data
    - Residence time behaviour
    - Heterogeneous catalysis (reaction mechanisms, sub-steps of catalysis, deactivation of catalysts)
