7A. A BRIEF SUMMARY OF ELEMENTARY GAS-PHASE REACTIONS
We will classify these as:
- bimolecular
- trimolecular
- unimolecular
7A-1. Bimolecular Reactions
Bimolecular gas phase reactions can occur:
between two molecules
between a free

Tubular reactors in which homogeneous reactions are conducted can be empty or packed conduits
of various cross-sectional shape. Pipes, i.e tubular vessels of cylindrical shape, dominate. The

Diffusion: A General Treatment of Molecules and Ions
We have seen that diffusion may be regarded as the net movement of solutes in solution (or in gas phase)

PRECISION OF KINETIC MEASUREMENTS:
Random errors can never be completely avoided in kinetic measurements but we can
often estimate the maximum possible error in our measurements of concentrations,
temperature fluctuations, etc.

The axial dispersion model can readily be extended to apply to turbulent flow conditions. Under
such conditions the velocity profile is almost flat and averaging with respect to radial position is
possible. The axial dispersi

In dealing with homogeneous reaction systems we have seen that basically all problems e

When instead of a reactor problem we deal with problems of mixing of one material that flows
after another as both are being pumped through the same pipe line, we use the dispersion or
Taylor diffusion model (depending whether the
