Using the example of the boundary of material and energy movement in a specific chemical reactor, this course explains about the principles of material exchange, principles of reactor and reaction operation in various processes and, based on these, studies the reaction and reactor operation in a production process. Firstly, the chemical reactions ranging from simple to complex and from liquid phase homogeneous reactions to heterogeneous reactions at the solid surface are dealt with. Subsequently, this course introduces the fundamentals of the unit operations (mechanical operation, heat operation, mass transfer operation), which are related to the preparation, separation of a reactant and product, and the control of a chemical reactors.
At the end of this course, students will be able to issue a guideline to the design of various reactors and unit operations based on their fundamentals.

|Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Specialist skills||Critical thinking skills||Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Class 1 ~ Class 7: The first part of each lecture (for 80 minutes) explains the lecture contents by writing on the blackboard. The remaining 10 minutes are applied to a problem related to the lecture contents (in the form of a short test or questionnaire).
Class 9 ~ Class 15: The class is composed mainly of lectures together with the related exercise problems.
