Course Description

Some topics in the state-of-the-art studies related to chemical engineering are lectured. In the first half, extension of chemical engineering to electrochemical reaction processes is explained with taking a polymer electrolyte fuel cell as an example. In the latter half, application of chemical engineering to reactions of complex heavy carbonaceous resources is presented and kinetic modeling of reactions of solids and heavy liquids for predicting the rate and quality of the products is explained.
