CHE 325 Chemical Reaction Engineering
Application of material balances, energy balances, chemical equilibrium relations, and chemical kinetic expressions to the design of chemical reactors.
Combined junior level course project
Having students work in teams to solve open ended chemical engineering problems
Integrate topics and knowledge from multiple courses
Combine analytical and computational
tools for solving separation and reaction engineering problems
Kinetics & Catalysis
Discussion of a variety of topics related to both theoretical and experimental evaluation of heterogeneous catalysts, with an emphasis on thermocatalytic systems. Topics include chemical kinetics, microkinetic modeling for heterogeneous catalysis, reaction rate theory, synthesis and characterization of solid materials, and topics related to measurement of experimental rate data.
