10.37 Chemical and Biological Reaction Engineering, Spring 2007 Prof. William H. Green Lecture 16: Catalysis This lecture covers: Inorganic and enzyme catalysis and their properties; kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions; adsorption isotherms, derivation of rate laws; and Langumuir-Hinshelwood kinetics What initiates the reaction? AB +→ starts upon mixing A B Product Figure 1. Bi-molecular reaction in a CSTR. Temperature drastically increases reaction rate. Figure 2. Schematic of tube reactor. Catalyst dramatically increases reaction rate. A catalyst C 2 H 6 Rxn occurs Fire Hot Figure 3. Schematic of packed bed reactor.
