Chemical Reaction Engineering covers the material required for a basic understanding of chemical reaction engineering. The first chapter introduces the topic. The next chapter considers the materials balance for chemical reactions. The chapter after that examines the calculation of reactor volume and residence time. The chapter that follows is about multiple reactions. The text also covers the energy balance and temperature effects. The last chapter is about non-ideal reactors.
