Outline of lecture

Advanced chemical reaction engineering is intended as a course for first-year graduate course in chemical engineering. One of the features that distinguishs chemical engineering is its interest in solving ill-structured problems that presents a dilemma for planning; how can one plan the route towards a solution if one knows so little about the path ahead, especially when one does not know the final destination or goal state. The problem descriptions lack a statement of a concrete and visualisable goal-state. The modeling process that is lectured in this course gives a better handle for ill-structured problems.
Keywords of this course are chemical kinetics, chemical and biological reactors, stability of reactor performance, heterogeneous reactions, catalyst reaction engineering, biological reaction engineering, peptide engineering and non-ideal flow reactors.

Purpose of lecture

Advanced chemical reaction engineering course is designed to give chemical engineering graduate students a deep understanding and detailed knowledge on chemical and biological reaction engineering.
Focus 1: Chemical kinetics
Focus 2: Stability of chemical reactor performance
Focus 3: Heterogeneous reactions
Focus 4: Catalyst reaction engineering
Focus 5: Biochemical reaction engineering
Focus 6: Non-ideal flow reactors
