The subject is focused on the analysis of behaviour of chemically reacting systems and design of chemical reactors. The students are introduced to basic concepts, mass and energy balances of reacting systems in steady and dynamic states. Further the students are acquainted with the analysis of heterogeneous reactions both catalytic and non catalytic together with chemical reactor models used in heterogeneous reaction applications. The important part of subject is the design of chemical reactor based on laboratory kinetic data.
