This compact yet comprehensive book covers the material required for a basic understanding of chemical reaction engineering. The principles of reaction engineering are simply and clearly presented, and illustrative problems are used to demonstrate how these principles are practically applied. Further problems with solutions are also supplied. An ideal self-study guide for interested readers, this work is also useful for engineers and scientists from other disciplines interested in acquiring some knowledge of reaction engineering.
Sean C. Emerson said A good primer for introductory kinetics and reactor design. I think this would be a good book for undergraduate students taking their first course in chemical kinetics and reactor design. It only covers homogeneous reactions, ignoring mass transfer issues, but it does deal with energy balances and multiple reactions. This short book is sort of a cross between a Schaum's Outline type book and a cliff notes for a kinetics book.One annoyance is that the author used the opposite sign convention for rates of reaction which I dislike, but it's a minor issue. I think that this book would b
