The main objective of this course is to improve students’ understanding of the basic
reaction engineering, to educate them as to define and analyze the chemical reactions
appeared in both daily life and chemical engineering by showing them that principles of
chemical kinetics are also applicable to living systems as well as to the production of
chemicals. By this course, they will be able to define and solve the reaction engineering
problems.
 Develop the general balance equations for the most common industrial reactors.
 Make conversions, and rewrite the design equations in terms of conversion and
describe how one may size a reactor once the relationship between reaction rate
and conversion is known.
 Study chemical kinetics and visualize how the reaction rate depends on the
concentrations of the reacting species with illustrations and how to convert the
reaction rate law from the concentration dependence to a dependence on
conversion.
 Study liquid-phase batch reactor and determine the specific rate constant needed
for the design of a CSTR.
 Describe the points in design of CSTR from batch reaction rate data and a tubular
reactor for a gas-phase pyrolysis reaction.
 Describe two common types of reactors for obtaining rate data, the batch reactor
and the differential reactor.
 Collect and analyze reaction rate data to obtain the rate law for a specific reaction
 Define a catalyst, describe its properties and the steps in a catalytic reaction, apply
the concept of a rate-limiting step to derive a rate law.
 Derive the needed energy balance to solve reactor design problems, derivation and
manipulation of the energy balance for its applications to various reactor types and
the coupling of energy balance with the mole balance, rate laws and stoichiometry
to design non-isothermal reactors.
 Discuss reactor selection and the types and properties of multiple reactions and

derive general mole balances for simultaneous reactions.
Describe types and properties of slurry and chemostat multiphase reactors and also
of the growth and inhibition kinetics as well as the mass balance equations and
stoichiometric relationships for bioreactors.
 Diagnose and handle chemical reactors whose performance deviates from the ideal
and principles behind the analysis of non-ideal reactors.
 Model the reactor flow pattern using combinations and/or modifications of ideal
reactors to represent real reactors, to classify a model as a one-parameter model
or a two- parameter model and to use RTD for evaluation of parameter(s) in the
model.
