Quatrième de couverture

Learn Chemical Reaction Engineering through Reasoning, Not Memorization


Essentials of Chemical Reaction Engineering is a complete yet concise, modern introduction to chemical reaction engineering for undergraduate students. While the classic Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, Fourth Edition, is still available, H. Scott Fogler distilled that larger text into this volume of essential topics for undergraduate students.


Fogler’s unique way of presenting the material helps students gain a deep, intuitive understanding of the field’s essentials through reasoning, not memorization. He especially focuses on important new energy and safety issues, ranging from solar and biomass applications to the avoidance of runaway reactions.


Thoroughly classroom tested, this text reflects feedback from hundreds of students at the University of Michigan and other leading universities. It also provides new resources to help students discover how reactors behave in diverse situations—including many realistic, interactive simulations on DVD-ROM.


Coverage includes

  • Crucial safety topics, including ammonium nitrate CSTR explosions, nitroaniline and T2 Laboratories batch reactor runaways, and SAChE/CCPS resources
  • Greater emphasis on safety: following the recommendations of the Chemical Safety Board (CSB) 2 case studies from plant explosions and two homework problems which discuss another explosion.
  • Solar energy conversions: chemical, thermal, and catalytic water spilling
  • Algae production for biomass
  • Mole balances: batch, continuous-flow, and industrial reactors
  • Conversion and reactor sizing: design equations, reactors in series, and more
  • Rate laws and stoichiometry
  • Isothermal reactor design: conversion and molar flow rates
  • Collection and analysis of rate data
  • Multiple reactions: parallel, series, and complex reactions; membrane reactors; and more
  • Reaction mechanisms, pathways, bioreactions, and bioreactors
  • Catalysis and catalytic reactors
  • Nonisothermal reactor design: steady-state energy balance and adiabatic PFR applications
  • Steady-state nonisothermal reactor design: flow reactors with heat exchange 

About the DVD-ROM


The DVD contains six additional, graduate-level chapters covering catalyst decay, external diffusion effects on heterogeneous reactions, diffusion and reaction, distribution of residence times for reactors, models for non-ideal reactors, and radial and axial temperature variations in tubular reactions. Extensive additional DVD resources include:

  • Summary notes, additional examples, derivations, audio commentary, and self-tests
  • Web modules applying key concepts to standard and nonstandard problems, such as the use of wetlands to degrade toxic chemicals
  • Interactive computer games that review and apply important chapter concepts
  • Innovative “Living Example” and Green Engineering home problems
  • A link to the Fogler Polymath site and the polymath code to solve the examples from the book are included on the DVD
  • Included are the codes necessary to solve the COMSOL Multiphysics™ examples from the text.
  • A complete, new AspenTech tutorial, and four complete example problems
  • FAQs, answering CRE questions commonly asked by undergraduates
  • Visual Encyclopedia of Equipment, Reactor Lab, and other intuitive tools 
  • Links to humorous YouTube CRE videos created by students at the University of Alabama

Additional updates, applications, and information will be provided on the web.

Pretty decent textbook 5 mai 2011
Par Watermelons - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I'm a current student in chemical engineering. I honestly this book was not too bad. The chapters were presented in a well organized format with each new section of chapter building off the last making it a pretty easy read as far as material is concerned. There's tons of funny quotes incorporated into the book, some even a little tricky and interesting to find (read carefully) that make reading the textbook a little more interesting than your standard textbook.

One of the problems I did however have with the textbook was the questions for the homework, hence the four star review. Some of the questions are much much harder and require a lot more thinking. Of course, you would see this in any textbook, but I felt that for some of the harder (C rated questions) the material was a little bit lacking.

Overall, a decent textbook. Our school library has an online version available for students for free which is what I used.

Pretty Good Textbook 10 janvier 2012

Well, this text is pretty much the gold-standard for chemical reaction engineering studies. There are still a good number of typos considering the number of revisions it has gone through. Fogler does get a little corny at times with some of the jokes he works into the problems after each chapter, but i can't think of any other texts that present the core material as well as this one does.

Book is easy to read, and makes sense 4 avril 2013

This book is actually a really nice option for kinetics. Actually it is one of only a handful of kinetics books that I'm aware of.

The biggest issue I have is my professor, but the book makes up for a lot of that.

Lots of typos 18 mars 2011
Par Brittany Michael - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I'm rewriting a review I posted before after realizing that it was a little long-winded.

I purchased this book for my kinetics class. I wasn't very pleased with the book, because there were so many typos: professor's names (page 334 should read Professor Al Weimer and page 328 should read Professor John Falconer), integral parts of homework problems, the main content of the chapter, etc). The content of the book would have been good were it not published too soon. I paid a lot of money for a book that had so many errors. The sheer frustration of redoing a homework problem a-j, because I didn't catch my professor's email that there was a typo and the number should have been x instead of y, really turned me off to this book.

My son used it all year and was happy he has the book. He uses it at school and glad it came when he needed it
