10.65 Chemical Reactor Engineering


Class Info

Fundamentals of chemically reacting systems with emphasis on synthesis of chemical kinetics and transport phenomena. Topics include kinetics of gas, liquid, and surface reactions; quantum chemistry; transition state theory; surface adsorption, diffusion, and desorption processes; mechanism and kinetics of biological processes; mechanism formulation and sensitivity analysis. Reactor topics include nonideal flow reactors, residence time distribution and dispersion models; multiphase reaction systems; nonlinear reactor phenomena. Examples are drawn from different applications, including heterogeneous catalysis, polymerization, combustion, biochemical systems, and materials processing.

This class has 10.37 as a prerequisite.

10.65 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by H. Kulik and M. Strano.

Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 66-110.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
