Residence time distribution function and its measurement – Characteristics of tracer – Mean residence time – Conversion in non-ideal flow reactors.

UNIT II

HETROGENEOUS PROCESS AND SOLID CATALYSIS

9

Rate equation for heterogeneous reactions – Nature of catalysis –Adsorption isothermal and rates of adsorption – Desorption and surface reaction analysis of rate equation – Rate controlling steps.


UNIT III

GAS – SOLID CATALYTIC REACTORS

9

Characteristics of catalyzed reactions – Mechanism of solid catalyzed reactions – Pore diffusion resistance combined with surface kinetics – Performance equations for reactors containing porous catalysts.

UNIT IV

GAS – SOLID NON – CATALYTIC REACTORS

9

Selection of the kinetic model – Progressive – conversion model, shrinking – core model – Shrinking-core model for spherical particles of unchanging size – Shrinking-core model for cylindrical particles of unchanging size.

UNIT V

GAS – LIQUID REACTIONS

9

Various ways of carrying out gas – liquid reactions catalyzed by solids – General rate equation – Resistances in series in the gas – liquid reaction on catalyst surface.

TOTAL ( L : 45 + T : 15) : 60 PERIODS

OUTCOME:
Students gain knowledge on the selection of the reactor for the reaction and its design.
