Microreactor Technology and Process Intensification.
Microreactor technology and process intensification.
Ed. by Yong Wang and Jamelyn D. Holladay.
American Chemical Society
ACS symposium series; 914
Stemming from the First Symposium on Microreactor Technology and Process Intensification held as part of the 226th American Chemical Society National Meeting in New York in September 2003, this volume contains a selection of 25 papers from the symposium, most of them reporting on current research. Microreactors, their catalysts, fuel processors, millisecond contact-time catalysis, gas to liquid technology, biomass conversion, micromixers, reactive membranes, and intensification of separation operations are some of the topics. Overview chapters that comment on the evolution of the technology from its origins are included on microreactor research and development at Louisiana Tech U.; silicon-based microreactors; chemical microprocess engineering; early-stage microchannel reactor development at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; and parallel heterogeneous reactor systems for catalyst screening. Both editors are at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington. Distributed by Oxford U. Press.
