This comprehensive review, prepared by 24 experts, many of whom are pioneers of the subject, brings together in one place over 40 years of research in this unique publication. This book will assist R & D specialists, research chemists, chemical engineers or process managers harnessing periodic operations to improve their process plant performance. Periodic Operation of Reactors covers process fundamentals, research equipment and methods and provides "the state of the art" for the periodic operation of many industrially important catalytic reactions. Emphasis is on experimental results, modeling and simulation. Combined reaction and separation are dealt with, including simulated moving bed chromatographic, pressure and temperature swing and circulating bed reactors. Thus, Periodic Operation of Reactors offers readers a single comprehensive source for the broad and diverse new subject. This exciting new publication is a "must have" for any professional working in chemical process research and development. A comprehensive reference on the fundamentals, development and applications of periodic operation Contributors and editors include the pioneers of the subject as well as the leading researchers in the field Covers both fundamentals and the state of the art for each operation scenario, and brings all types of periodic operation together in a single volume Discussion is focused on experimental results rather than theoretical ones; provides a rich source of experimental data, plus process models Accompanying website with modelling data

Reactor design for Chemical Engineering deals with maximization of product yields and the net present value for the chemical reaction, optimization of the reaction efficiency, and minimization of costs. This book discusses the best choice of catalysts, different reaction steps and intermediates and the design of the catalytic reactors, in which the catalysis and chemical reaction are combined to achieve intensification.

Today's frustrations and anxieties resulting from two energy crises in only one decade, show us the problems and fragility of a world built on high energy consumption, accustomed to the use of cheap non-renewable energy and to the acceptance of eXisting imbalances between the resources and demands of countries. Despite all these stressing factors, our world is still hesitatins about the urgency of undertaking new and decisive research that could stabilize our future, Could this trend change in the near future? In our view, two different scenarios are possible. A renewed energy tension could take place with an unpredictable timing mostly related to political and economic factors, This could bring again scientists and technologists to a new state of shock and awaken our talents, A second interesting and beneficial scenario could result from the positive influence of a new generation of researchers that with or without immediate crisis, acting both in industry and academia, will face the challenge of developing technologies and processes to pave the way to a less vulnerable society, Because Chemical Reactor Design and Technology activities are at the heart of these required new technologies the timeliness of the NATO-Advanced Study Institute at the University of Western Ontario, London, was very appropriate.

Reaction Kinetics and the Development and Operation of Catalytic Processes is a trendsetter. The Keynote Lectures have been authored by top scientists and cover a broad range of topics like fundamental aspects of surface chemistry, in particular dynamics and spillover, the modeling of reaction mechanisms, with special focus on the importance of transient experimentation and the application of kinetics in reactor design. Fundamental and applied kinetic studies are well represented. More than half of these deal with transient kinetics, a new trend made possible by recent sophisticated experimental equipment and the awareness that transient experimentation provides more information and insight into the microphenomena occurring on the catalyst surface than steady state techniques. The trend is not limited to purely kinetic studies since the great majority of the papers dealing with reactors also focus on transients and even deliberate transient operation. It is to be expected that this trend will continue and amplify as the community becomes more aware of the predictive potential of fundamental kinetics when combined with detailed realistic modeling of the reactor operation.

Fixed-Bed Reactor Design and Diagnostics: Gas-Phase Reactions presents the essential theoretical and conceptual background of gaseous reactions catalyzed by solid catalysts in fixed beds. This book intends to provide recommendations to professionals who seek for modeling, scale-up, and diagnostics of fixed-bed reactors. The text is divided into three parts. Part I provides the conceptual background and relevant theories. Part II presents recommended mathematical models, scale-up procedures, and diagnostic methods. Part III gives a number of practical examples. The topics that are specifically discussed include heterogeneous catalysis and kinetics; general tubular reactor model; and general diagnostics for fixed-bed reactors. Engineers and professionals working with fixed-bed reactors will find the book highly informative.
