Rate Equations: Rate equation – elementary – non-elementary
reactions – theories of reaction rate and temperature dependency – Design equation for constant and variable volume batch reactors – analysis of experimental kinetics data – integral and differential analysis.
Design of Reactors: Design of continuous reactors – stirred ank and tubular flow reactor, recycle reactors – combination of reactors – size comparison of reactors.
Design of Multiple Reactors: Design of reactors for multiple
reactions – consecutive – parallel and mixed reactions – factors
affecting choice – optimum yield and conversion – selectivity,
reactivity and yield.
Non – isothermal Reactors: Non-isothermal homogeneous
reactor systems – adiabatic reactors – rates of heat exchanges
for different reactors – design for constant rate input and constant heat transfer coefficient – operation of batch and continuous reactors – optimum temperature progression.
Non Ideal Reactors: The residence time distribution as a factor of performance; residence time functions and relationship between them in reactor; basic models for nonideal flow; conversion in non ideal reactors.
