Unformatted text preview: ider the autocatalytic reaction given by the following schema: Step 1 : Step 2 : A B 2B
k2 k1 3B C We assume B is the desired product, but as a consequent of the side reaction the product will decay to form species C. The reactions stated above are taken to be elementary and therefore can be described by mass action kinetics. The kinetic schema outlined above takes place in a semi-batch reactor. A schematic of the reactor is shown below The initial volume of the reactor is 0 and contains species A only. At time t 0, species A and B are feed to the reactor at constant flow rates Q1 a...
