ENS3113 Reaction Engineering
Credit Points: 15
ENS2160 Thermodynamics , AND
ENS3110 Heat and Mass Transfer

Reaction engineering deals with the performance analysis and design of equipment for carrying out chemical reactions. The analysis involves principles of chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer as well as fluid mechanics. In this unit the basic principles of chemical kinetics and reaction equilibrium are covered, and then various ideal reactors in which the complexities arising from resistances associated with fluid flow as well as heat and mass transfer are sequentially introduced. Both homogeneous as well as heterogeneous catalytic systems are considered.
