This book like the first edition can be used to introduce the novice to chemical kinetics and reactor design and to guide them until they understand the fundamentals well enough to read both articles in the literature and more advanced texts. They are relevant to a wide variety of industrial problems ranging from energy and pollution control to sustainable utilization of natural resources and to production of pharmaceutical products. The beginning chapters provide readers with a short review of stoichiometry and thermodynamics while also encompassing chemical reaction equilibria. Chapters 3 to 7 treat the aspects of chemical kinetics that are important to the education of a well-read chemical engineer and use actual chemical reactions and kinetic parameters in the many illustrative examples and problems. Chapters 8 to 12 provide an introduction to chemical reactor design including an introduction to complications such as the use of combinations of reactors, implications of multiple reactions, temperature and energy effects, residence time effects, and heat and mass transfer limitations.
