Today's Definitive, Undergraduate-Level Introduction to Chemical Reaction Engineering Problem-Solving
For 30 years, H. Scott Fogler's Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering has been the #1 selling text for courses in chemical reaction engineering. Now, in Essentials of Chemical Reaction Engineering, Second Edition, Fogler has distilled this classic into a modern, introductory-level guide specifically for undergraduates. This is the ideal resource for today's students: learners who demand instantaneous access to information and want to enjoy learning as they deepen their critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. Fogler successfully integrates text, visuals, and computer simulations, and links theory to practice through many relevant examples.
This updated edition covers mole balances, conversion and reactor sizing, rate laws and stoichiometry, isothermal reactor design, rate data collection/analysis, multiple reactions, reaction mechanisms, pathways, bioreactions and bioreactors, catalysis, catalytic reactors, nonisothermal reactor designs, and more. Its multiple improvements include a new discussion of activation energy and a significantly revamped chapter on heat effects.
To promote the transfer of key skills to real-life settings, Fogler presents three styles of problems:
Straightforward problems that reinforce the principles of chemical reaction engineering
Living Example Problems (LEPs) that allow students to rapidly explore the issues and look for optimal solutions
Open-ended problems that encourage students to practice creative problem-solving skills
