Chemical and Biological Reaction Engineering: Course Description

A major component of this course deals with various types of reactors, including batch, plug flow and isotope. In the original 'Chemical and Biological Reaction Engineering' course, Professors William Green, Jr. and K. Dane Wittrup also covered mass transfer and biocatalysis. In addition to these core topics, 'Chemical and Biological Reaction Engineering' OpenCourseWare presents examples of how chemical and biological reactions are applied in the cutting-edge biotech and energy sectors. This 'Chemical and Biological Reaction Engineering' lecture course was required for students earning B.S. degrees in the Chemical Engineering Department at MIT.

This OpenCourseWare contains lecture notes, a reading list, problem sets with solutions, exams with solutions, external WebLab links and downloadable lab information and a MATLAB software review.
