CHEG 836 - Advanced Chemical Kinetics (3cr.)

Credit(s): 3
Component: Lecture
Examination of the physical interpretation of kinetic rate expressions via elementary reaction steps, transition state theory, estimation of enthalpies and entropies of activation. Development of reaction networks from elementary kinetic steps using concepts of the steady-state approximation, rate determining step and most abundant reaction intermediate. Application to thermal cracking, pyrolysis, polymerization, combustion and heterogeneous catalysis.
