This systematic presentation covers both experimental and theoretical kinetic methods, as well as fundamental and applied. The identification of dominant reaction paths, reaction intermediates and rate-determining steps allows a quantification of the effects of reaction conditions and catalyst properties, providing guidelines for catalyst optimization. In addition, the form in which the equations are presented allows for their straightforward implementation for scale-up and chemical reactor design purposes. Throughout, the methodologies given are illustrated by many examples.
Professor Guy B. Marin is chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Ghent University (Belgium). He received his PhD degree from Ghent University in 1980. He took a position of full professor in 1988 at Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands) where he taught chemical reactors. In 1997 he returned to Ghent as director of the Laboratory for Chemical Technology. He co-authored more tan 300 papers in international journals. Professor Marin is editor-in-chief of 'Advances in Chemical Engineering' and co-editor of the Chemical Engineering Journal. Chemical reaction and reactor engineering in general and reaction kinetics in particular are the main leads in his research program.
Professor Gregory S. Yablonsky obtained his academic degrees from the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (Novosibirsk, Russia). From 1995 until 2007, he worked in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, USA. Since 2007, he is working at Parks College and in the Department of Chemistry at Saint Louis University. Professor Yablonsky has been a Visiting Professor at several universities, in particular the National University of Singapore and Queen's University of Belfast (N. Ireland, UK). Since 2009, Yablonsky is a Honorary Professor of Ghent University. He has served as organizer and chairman of many international conferences on chemical kinetics, catalysis, and mathematical methods in chemical engineering. He has been involved in theoretical kinetics and heterogeneous catalysis research for over 30 years, and is author of more than 200 papers and six books.
