Elements of
Chemical Reaction Engineering 5th Edition H. Scott Fogler
Chapter 10 – Catalysis and Catalytic Reactors (p. 399-492)

After completion of this topic, you should be able to…

  • Describe the main contact patterns (mixed flow and plug flow) and ideal design equations used in heterogeneous reaction systems.
  • Apply design equations to size and design:
    • Ideal PBRs
    • Ideal Fluidized CSTRs
  • Explain the following concepts: what a catalyst is, the basic steps involved in the solid-catalyst reaction system, and the rate-limiting step.
