Chemical Reaction Engineering, Third Edition helps students learn how to answer reactor design questions reliably and effectively. To accomplish this, the text emphasizes qualitative arguments, simple design methods, graphical procedures, and frequent comparison of capabilities of major reactor types. This approach helps students develop a strong intuitive sense for good design.

New to This Edition

  • New Topics. A number of new topics have also been added to the third edition. Including biochemical systems, reactors with fluidized solids, gas/liquid reactors, and more on nonideal flow.
  • New Problems. 75% of the over 400 problems in the text are new. These problems help students apply the concepts presented in the text to new situations. Students will also find over 80 illustrative examples that reinforce the material.

The Wiley Advantage

  • Simple ideas are presented first and then extended to the more complex. This progression helps students build a solid understanding of basic concepts before moving on to more difficult ones. Also, emphasis is placed throughout on the development of a common design strategy for all systems, homogeneous and heterogeneous.
  • The text is written in a student-friendly style. Where needed, time is taken to consider why certain assumptions are made, to discuss why an alternative approach is not used, and to indicate the limitations of the treatment when applied to real situations. The mathematical level required for the text is elementary calculus and the linear first-order differential equation.
