Knowledge of ideal chemical reactors, chemical kinetics and thermodynamics.
Develop skills of analysis of real reactors through the residential distribution theory and understand the impact of catalysis in transformation processes through the study of catalytic reactors.
1 Introduction: revision work on ideal chemical reactors and experimental determination of reaction kinetics.
2 Distribution of residential times characteristics, experimental determination and modelling of real reactors.
3 Catalysers and catalytic reactors. Catalysis; catalyser diffusion, convection and reaction; modelling of fixed-bed catalytic reactors
Final mark is the weighted average of an individual essay(continuous assessment) or a written exam and laboratory reports.
