Introduction to Chemical Reaction Engineering and Kinetics – Ronald W. Missen – 1st Edition


Solving problems in chemical reaction engineering and kinetics is now easier than ever! As students read through this text, they’ll find a comprehensive, introductory treatment of reactors for single–phase and multiphase systems that exposes them to a broad range of reactors and key design features.

They’ll gain valuable insight on reaction kinetics in relation to chemical reactor design. They will also utilize a special software package that helps them quickly solve systems of algebraic and differential equations, and perform parameter estimation, which gives them more time for analysis. Key Features Thorough coverage is provided on the relevant principles of kinetics in order to develop better designs of chemical reactors.
