    1. Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) is the field that studies the rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions and the design of the reactors in which they take place. TODAY’S LECTURE Introduction Definitions General Mole Balance Equation Batch CSTR PFR PBR

    2. Chemical Reaction Engineering Chemical reaction engineering is at the heart of virtually every chemical process. It separates the chemical engineer from other engineers. Industries that Draw Heavily on Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) are: CPI (Chemical Process Industries) Dow, DuPont, Amoco, Chevron

    4. Developing Critical Thinking Skills Socratic Questioning is the Heart of Critical Thinking R. W. Paul’s Nine Types of Socratic Questions

    5. Let’s Begin CRE Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) is the field that studies the rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions and the design of the reactors in which they take place.

    6. Chemical Identity • A chemical species is said to have reacted when it has lost its chemical identity.

    7. Chemical Identity • A chemical species is said to have reacted when it has lost its chemical identity. • The identity of a chemical species is determined by the kind, number, and configuration of that species’ atoms.

    8. Chemical Identity • A chemical species is said to have reacted when it has lost its chemical identity. 1. Decomposition

    9. Chemical Identity • A chemical species is said to have reacted when it has lost its chemical identity. 1. Decomposition 2. Combination

    10. Chemical Identity • A chemical species is said to have reacted when it has lost its chemical identity. 1. Decomposition 2. Combination 3. Isomerization

    11. Reaction Rate • The reaction rate is the rate at which a species looses its chemical identity per unit volume.

    12. Reaction Rate • The reaction rate is the rate at which a species looses its chemical identity per unit volume. • The rate of a reaction (mol/dm3/s) can be expressed as either the rate of Disappearance: -rA or as the rate of Formation (Generation): rA

    13. Reaction Rate Consider the isomerization AB rA = the rate of formation of species A per unit volume -rA = the rate of a disappearance of species A per unit volume rB = the rate of formation of species B per unit volume

    14. Reaction Rate • EXAMPLE: AB If Species B is being formed at a rate of 0.2 moles per decimeter cubed per second, ie, rB = 0.2 mole/dm3/s

    15. Reaction Rate • EXAMPLE: AB rB = 0.2 mole/dm3/s Then A is disappearing at the same rate: -rA= 0.2 mole/dm3/s

    16. Reaction Rate • EXAMPLE: AB rB = 0.2 mole/dm3/s Then A is disappearing at the same rate: -rA= 0.2 mole/dm3/s The rate of formation (generation of A) is rA= -0.2 mole/dm3/s

    17. Reaction Rate • For a catalytic reaction, we refer to -rA', which is the rate of disappearance of species A on a per mass of catalyst basis. (mol/gcat/s) NOTE: dCA/dt is not the rate of reaction

    18. Reaction Rate Consider species j: • rj is the rate of formation of species j per unit volume [e.g. mol/dm3/s]

    19. Reaction Rate • rj is the rate of formation of species j per unit volume [e.g. mol/dm3*s] • rj is a function of concentration, temperature, pressure, and the type of catalyst (if any)

    20. Reaction Rate • rj is the rate of formation of species j per unit volume [e.g. mol/dm3/s] • rj is a function of concentration, temperature, pressure, and the type of catalyst (if any) • rj is independent of the type of reaction system (batch reactor, plug flow reactor, etc.)

    21. Reaction Rate • rj is the rate of formation of species j per unit volume [e.g. mol/dm3/s] • rj is a function of concentration, temperature, pressure, and the type of catalyst (if any) • rj is independent of the type of reaction system (batch, plug flow, etc.) • rj is an algebraic equation, not a differential equation

    26. Plug Flow Reactor

    27. Plug Flow Reactor Mole Balance PFR: The integral form is: This is the volume necessary to reduce the entering molar flow rate (mol/s) from FA0 to the exit molar flow rate of FA.
