Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering - 4th edition

H. Scott Fogler

The book presents in a clear and concise manner the fundamentals of chemical reaction engineering. A structure is developed that allows the student to solve reaction engineering problems through reasoning rather than through memorization and recall of numerous equations, restrictions and conditions under which each equation applies. In this fourth edition there is an emphasis throughout on bioreaction engineering and this edition contains more industrial chemistry with real reactors and real reactions and extends the wide range of applications to which chemical reaction engineering principles can be applied (i.e., cobra bites, medications, ecological engineering).
