This is the Second Edition of the standard text on chemical reaction engineering, beginning with basic definitions and fundamental principles and continuing all the way to practical applications, emphasizing real-world aspects of industrial practice. The two main sections cover applied or engineering kinetics, reactor analysis and design. Includes updated coverage of computer modeling methods and many new worked examples. Most of the examples use real kinetic data from processes of industrial importance.

    Thoroughly Mediocre

    There aren't many textbook selections out there for professors of graduate reaction engineering, so I guess that's why some choose this book. This book reads like it's a compilation of individual papers from the authors, wrapped up and called a textbook. There is essentially no flow between chapters (not to mention an inconsistent font throughout the book). Another side effect of the paper-compilation method is the extensive amount of referencing done. This is OK in an academic periodical, but I expect a little more explanation from a textbook. Another gripe I have is that when going through some calculation techniques, huge (very important) steps will be glossed over and unexplained. There is a lot covered in this book. I would never recommend this book for an undergraduate class, however, I can understand why some professors choose it at the graduate level (We'll leave out the fact that my professor was buddy-buddy with one of the authors . . .).
