Successful reaction engineering of catalytic systems requires a fundamental understanding of the following chemical/physical forces and mechanistic events:

In every reaction engineering application, the chemical engineer is interested in understanding the mechanism of the given chemical reaction, as well as determining the rate law and associated kinetic and thermodynamic parameters to quantify the rate of reaction. Once this information is known, the chemical engineer can begin the task of sizing a suitable chemical reactor (using an appropriate mole balance), and/or determining the appropriate set of operating conditions [temperature, pressure, reactant concentration(s), time].
