INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTIONThe mechanism and corresponding kinetics provide the rate at which the chemical or biochemical species in the reactor system react at the prevailing conditions of temperature, pressure, composition, mixing, flow, heat, and mass transfer. Observable kinetics represent the true intrinsic chemical kinetics only when competing phenomena such as transport of mass and heat are not limiting the rates. The intrinsic chemical mechanism and kinetics are unique to the reaction system. Knowledge of the intrinsic kinetics therefore facilitates reactor selection, choice of optimal operating conditions, and reactor scale-up and design, when combined with understanding of the associated physical and transport phenomena for different reactor scales and types.This section covers t…
