Advanced Chemical Reaction Process Engineering

LecturerTomohiko TAGAWA, Professor
DepartmentSchool of Engineering / Graduate School of Engineering, 2011 Spring
Recommended for:Graduate School of Engineering 1st and 2nd year Biotechnology students (11.5 hours / session 1 session / week 7 weeks / semester)

Key Features

This lecture uses an original textbook edited by the Society of Chemical Engineers of Japan, Tohkai branch, and the Division of Reaction Engineering. In the first lesson, an outline and objective of the lecture will be given. In the second lesson, the role of reaction engineering on the process development will be summarized. The four categories mentioned above will then be followed on a class by class basis. Each lecture, the relationship between experiments using the new concept and sustainable society will be introduced using actual examples.

Course Objectives and Course Aims

In the lecture on the actual reaction processes which are supported by new developments in reaction engineering, future possibilities will be understood. The objective of this lecture is to understand and apply the new concepts of reaction engineering.

Background Courses

Reaction chemistry and chemical reaction engineering at undergraduate level.

Course Contents

  1. Introduction and course outline
  2. Reaction engineering and process development
