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)
