Kinetics of homogeneous reactions: variables affecting rate; elementary and non-elementary reactions. Thermodynamics of chemical reactions: temperature and pressure effects. Basic concepts in chemical kinetics: determination of the reaction rate expression; molecular interpretations of kinetic phenomena; multiple reactions; autocatalytic reactions. Basic concepts in reactor design: types of reactors; ideal reactors; recycle reactor; autocatalytic reactors; isothermal operation; treatment of multiple reactions; temperature and energy effects in chemical reactors; optimum temperature progression. Kinetics of heterogeneous reactions; mechanism of catalysis; types of catalysis; operation and properties of catalysts.
