Multiphase catalytic and non-catalytic reactors are ubiquitously found in chemical, biochemical and petrochemical industries for manufacturing variety of useful products. Effective design of such reactors for improved productivity requires detailed understanding of the underlying principles that govern their functioning. This second level course on chemical reaction engineering will extensively cover design of fluid-solid catalytic and non- catalytic reactors. Moreover, residence time distribution is an important aspect that is often used for various fault- diagnosis purposes. This course also covers various aspects of RTD and its applicability in designing non-ideal reactors. The material covered in this course will build on the basic topics of the first level chemical reaction engineering course. INTENDED AUDIENCE : Chemical Engineering, Energy Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Petrochemical engineering, BiotechnologyPREREQUISITES : Linear algebra, First course in reaction engineering, Heat and mass transferINDUSTRY SUPPORT : Reliance, HPCL, BPCL, RCF, Other chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical companies

My favorite subject is chemistry. I love this subject. I learn this subject every day.Some products and medicine are prepared from chemistry.This subject teaches us some chemistry force.I am chemical engineer. I study "Sabah" groups."Sabah" is a special group in Azerbaijan education system.I graduate Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University .I get master degree about chemistry engineering now.Chemical engineers research and develop new materials or processes that involve chemical reactions.Industries require chemical engineers to devise new ways to make the manufacturing of their products easier and more cost effective. I work in State Oil Company Azerbaijan Republic.I like my profession.This course very interesting for me .I hope learn a lot of thing this course.After I get certificate about chemical engineering .
