Kinetic modeling in heterogeneous catalysis

  • Kurskod: FKBT045
  • ECTS-poäng: 7,5
  • Institution: KEMI OCH KEMITEKNIK
  • Forskarskola: Kemiteknik
  • Periodicitet: Spring every second or third year, next occasion Spring 2016
  • Undervisningsspråk: Kursen kommer att ges på engelska
Aim
The aim is to give an in depth understanding for kinetic modeling for heterogenous catalysis. Kinetic models can be used for:
  • Predict the concentrations out from the catalyst
  • Get knowledge about the rate determining step
  • Get fundamental knowledge about the surface mechanisms
The course includes how to write kinetics, thermodynamic restrictions, determination of parameters, pseudo steady state, rate determining step, deactivation, etc.

Content
There are two parts in the course: lectures and a project. In the project the participants will write their own matlab program for doing kinetic simulations, including thermodynamic restrictions of the parameters, etc.

Examination
Active participation in seminars and completed project.
