After completing Chapter 8 of the text and associated DVD material the reader will be able to:
- Define different types of selectively and yield.
- Choose the appropriate reactor and reaction system that would maximize the selectivity of the desired product given the rate laws for all the reactions occurring in the system.
- Describe the algorithm used to design reactors with multiple reactions.
- Apply the CRE algorithm to size reactors in order to maximize the selectivity and to determine the species concentrations in a batch reactor, a semibatch reactor, a CSTR, a PFR, and a PBR, in systems with multiple reactions.
