Aim of lectures is oriented to description of multiphase region systems, interactions of transport phenomena with chemical transformations, next to reactor design for gas-liquid reactions and in the presence of solid phase - heterogeneous catalyst or biomass. Experimental methods for identification of kinetic, diffusion and hydrodynamic regimes including heat transfer are explained as well. Mathematical models of transport phenomena including kinetics of chemical reactions and models of multiphase reactors with respect to their design and optimal operation are formulated and solved. Lectures program avers also methods description for kinetic data and process transport (mass, heat, impulse) characteristics measurement.

Students will be able to:

• Mathematical models formulation corresponding to multiphase chemical reactors behaviour in both steady state and dynamic regimes.

• Fundamental knowledge of transport processes interaction with chemical transformation kinetics in multiphase and multicomponent systems.

• Model solution describing multiphase reactors behaviour under steady state and dynamic conditions.
