Preface by the editors:
Volume 3 has now been split into two separate volumes 3A and 3B with 3A containing chapters on chemical and biochemical reaction engineering and 3B consisting of process dynamics and control.
In volume 3A, there are now a total of six chapters with two on biochemical reaction engineering (Chapters 5 and 6) compared to a single chapter in the third edition. Overall, the basic structure of the third edition has been retained. At the outset, we express our gratitude to the contributors of the third editiondProfessors J. C. Lee, W. J. Thomas, R. Lovitt, and M. Jonesdfor providing an enduring framework for us to build on. We highlight here the few changes we have made in the presentation of some of the material. These changes have been motivated by our own personal experience in teaching reaction engineering and also by the evolution of the presentation of the subject in various textbooks over the past two decades. Each chapter in the present edition starts with a set of Learning Outcomes, which we hope would enable the reader to assess the benefits that would accrue from reading the chapter.
In Chapter 1, greater emphasis is placed on deriving the material and energy balance equations from fundamental continuum principles. This, we hope, would enable the reader to more clearly see the assumptions inherent in the design equations of the ideal reactors and also be better equipped to handle more complicated reactors, if the need arises. Further, the section on obtaining kinetics from batch reactor data has been expanded.
In Chapter 2, on nonideal reactors, introduction of the two principal distribution functions is decoupled from the experimental methods used to determine them. The convolution theorem forms the centerpiece of the developments leading to the determination of the distribution functions from step and impulse responses. A detailed exposition of the zero parameter models is undertaken to illustrate the interplay of “macromixing,” “micromixing,” and kinetics in determining conversions in nonideal reactors.
Chapter 3 now includes more information related to the derivation of kinetic rate expressions for heterogeneous catalytic reactions where the importance of elementary steps is highlighted. The mechanism of catalyst poisoning is discussed. The section on gasesolid noncatalytic reactions is expanded to include the effect of different controlling resistances on the overall conversion of the solid. In Chapter 4, a rigorous framework is provided for he derivation of rate equations for gaseliquid reactions so that the reader is able to appreciate the importance of various nondimensional numbers.
Chapters 5 and 6 deal with biochemical engineering. It is important for the reader to first understand biomolecules (carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, fats, and lipids), and hence this is covered before introducing the principles of microbiology. Chapter 5 thus provides the background to the process engineering aspects of biochemical reactors which are covered in Chapter 6. A section on specificity of enzymes, which discusses the various theories such as lock and key mechanism, induced fit model, and transition state stabilization, is included. The revised section on microbial stoichiometry now contains cell composition, yields, growth stoichiometry, elemental balance, degree of reduction, electron balance, and product stoichiometry. The detailed derivations of the equations governing enzyme kinetics are now covered in the main text of Chapter 6.
