Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering – S. Fogler – 3rd Edition

The book presents in a clear and concise manner the fundamentals of chemical reaction engineering. The structure of the book allows the to solve reaction engineering problems through reasoning rather than through memorization and recall of numerous equations, restrictions, and conditions under which each equation applies. The fourth edition contains more industrial with real reactors and real engineering and extends the wide range of applications to which chemical reaction engineering principles can be applied (i., cobra bites, medications, ecological engineering)

The best selling chemical reaction engineering book just got better!
° The fundamentals of chemical reaction engineering — presented in a clear and conciser manner
° The reader learns how to solve problems through reasoning rather than getting lost in trying to remember which formula applies to what situation
° Reader develops critical and creative thinking skills they can apply to many situations, becoming more productive and self-reliant
