Overview. The objectives of this chapter are to develop an understanding of catalysts, reaction mechanisms, and catalytic reactor design. Specifically, after reading this chapter one should be able to
Define a catalyst and describe its properties.
Describe the steps in a catalytic reaction and in chemical vapor deposition (CVD).
Suggest a mechanism and apply the concept of a rate-limiting step to derive a rate law.
Use nonlinear regression to determine the rate law and rate-law parameters that best fit the data.
Use the rate-law parameters to design PBRs and fluidized CSTRs.
Describe the analogy between ...
