Chemical reactors are key components in the conversion of raw materials into products. Authors Salmi and Warna (Abo Akademi, Finland) and Mikkola (Umea U. Sweden) discuss that role and the many factors that need to be taken into account when selecting an efficient and appropriate reactor in this reference work. They provide an overview of the concept of chemical reaction engineering. Topics include: stoichiometry and kinetics, homogeneous reactors, non-ideal reactors, catalytic two- and three-phase reactors, gas-liquid reactors, new reactor and reaction engineering, and more. The book is intended for undergraduate and more advanced students and industrial engineers. A listing of notations and abbreviations is included.
