A comprehensive introduction to chemical engineering kinetics
Providing an introduction to chemical engineering kinetics and describing the empirical approaches that have successfully helped engineers describe reacting systems, An Introduction to Chemical Engineering Kinetics & Reactor Design is an excellent resource for students of chemical engineering. Truly introductory in nature, the text emphasizes those aspects of chemical kinetics and material and energy balances that form the broad foundation for understanding reactor design. For those seeking an introduction to the subject, the book provides a firm and lasting foundation for continuing study and practice.
