|Abstract||Heterogeneous Reaction Engineering equips students with tools essential for the optimal development of heterogeneous processes. Integrating concepts from chemical engineering and chemistry, students will be introduced to the fundamental principles of heterogeneous reactions and will develop the necessary skills for the selection and design of various types of idealized reactors.|
|Objective||At the end of the course the students will understand the basic principles of catalyzed and uncatalyzed heterogeneous reactions. They will know models to represent fluid-fluid and fluid-solid reactions; how to describe the kinetics of surface reactions; how to evaluate mass and heat transfer phenomena and account for their impact on catalyst effectiveness; the principle causes of catalyst deactivation; and reactor systems and protocols for catalyst testing.|
|Content||The following components are covered: |
- Fluid-fluid and fluid-solid heterogeneous reactions.
- Kinetics of surface reactions.
- Mass and heat transport phenomena.
- Catalyst effectiveness.
- Catalyst deactivation.
- Strategies for catalyst testing.
These aspects are exemplified through modern examples.
For each core topic exercises are assigned and evaluated.
The course also features an industrial lecture.
|Lecture notes||A dedicated script and lecture slides are available in printed form during the course.|
