Kinetic characterization of the chemical reaction
Engineering processes involve reaction with different reactants. In these reactions, it is important to understand the kinetic characterization of the chemical reactions involved. This report will present results of the kinetic data analysis for engineering chemical reactions. Engineering reactions range from simple reactions to complex reactions. All these reactions have kinetic data attached to the different reactants and chemical products (Winter 94). The kinetic data will help to characterize the engineering reactions. The kinetic data is derived from the type of reactions and time for the reactions. The major kinetic characterization factors include k, α, and β. This experiment will be able to determine these kinetic data factors. According to Van (79), engineering chemical reaction should be defined with the rate of chemical rate expression is given by the flowing form
W = kc1n1 c2n2
From the above reaction form, w denotes the rate of reaction, k is the rate coefficient while c1, c2… are concentrations. Molecularity will be an important process since all the reactions depend on chemical concentration to determine the chemical characterization (Wolf, Zaikov and Haghi 33). Engineering chemical reactions can be complex and therefore simple kinetic be unable to characterize them. In complex reactions, mathematical form of the expression of the reaction rate and even the concentration change with time are used to characterize the kinetics of the reactions. Tests on the integrated forms to test the applicability of given mechanisms have been carried for long (Mortier 68). For the complex engineering reactions, methods of excess and stoichiometric mixture are used to characterize the chemical reactions and collect the required kinetic data.
