This text combines a description of the origin and use of fundamental chemical kinetics through an assessment of realistic reactor problems with an expanded discussion of kinetics and its relation to chemical thermodynamics. It provides exercises, open-ended situations drawing on creative thinking, and worked-out examples. A solutions manual is also available to instructors.

Table of Contents

Apparent reaction kinetics in homogenous systems; the mechanisms of chemical reactions in homogenous phases; the mechanisms of chemical reactions on surfaces; introduction to chemical reactor theory; modelling of real reactors; thermal effects in the modelling of real reactors; reactions in heterogenous systems; multiphase reactors; some more unsteady-state problems.
