Bioreaction engineering is fundamental to the optimization of biotechnological processes and the production of biochemicals by enzymes, microbial, plant and animal cells and higher organisms. A reference text for postgraduate students and researchers in biochemical engineering and bioreactor design, Multiphase Bioreactor Design describes the fundamentals of bioreactors and their increasingly complex varieties. It highlights new methodologies for the analysis of multiphase bioreactors, namely hydrodynamics, image analysis and modeling. Specific chapters also provide information on the interactions between kinetic and transport phenomena, biocatalyst stability and cell physiology in non-conventional media such as organic solvents and pressurized gas phases.

The action of enzymes fascinated mankind long before they were rec ognized for the complex chemicals that they are. The first application of these remarkable compounds to produce ethanol by fermentation is lost to antiquity. Payer and Persoz (Ann. Chim. Phys. , 53, 73 (1833ii)) appear to have provided the first step toward understanding this com plex area when they reported the isolation of diastase in 1833. These workers showed that diastase could catalyze the hydrolysis of starches to sugars. Somewhat earlier Kirchhoff (Schwigger's Journal, 4, 108 (1812)) had shown that a small amount of dilute acid could hydrolyze a seemingly endless amount of starch to sugars. The genius of Berzelius recognized the commonality of these two observations in connection with a few other isolated observations and in 1834 coined the term catalysis to describe such actions. Professor Leibig was one of the giants of the chemical world in 1840. In addition to his own work, Liebig was training the world's next generation of chemists in his laboratory in Giessen. This cadre of chemists were very impressed by the master teacher so that is it only natural that Liebig's views should dominate with this next generation of chemists. Leibig was, in the 1830s and 1840s, developing his mastery of agricultural chemistry. The mechanism of putrefication was of great concern to Leibig, and he turned to the newly defined area of catalysis for an explanation.

The Definitive, Fully Updated Guide to Solving Real-World Chemical Reaction Engineering Problems For decades, H. Scott Fogler's Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering has been the world's dominant text for courses in chemical reaction engineering. Now, Fogler has created a new, completely updated fifth edition of his internationally respected book. The result is a refined book that contains new examples and problems, as well as an updated companion Web site. More than ever, Fogler has successfully integrated text, visuals, and computer simulations to help both undergraduate and graduate students master all of the field's fundamentals. As always, he links theory to practice through many relevant examples, ranging from standard isothermal and non-isothermal reactor design to applications, such as solar energy, blood clotting, and drug delivery, and computer chip manufacturing. To promote the transfer of key skills to real-life settings, Fogler presents the following three styles of problems: 1. Straightforward problems that reinforce the principles of chemical reaction engineering 2. Living Example Problems (LEPs) that allow students to rapidly explore the issues and look for optimal solutions 3. Open-ended problems that encourage students to practice creative problem-solving skills ABOUT THE WEB SITE The companion Web site offers extensive enrichment opportunities and additional content, including Complete PowerPoint slides for lecture notes for chemical reaction engineering classes.

This text examines the axiomatic approach, a powerful, unified approach to mathematical and computational modeling in science and engineering. Readers will discover that this axiomatic approach enables them to both systematically construct effective models, and also apply these models to any macroscopic physical system. It is ideal for both students and professionals across the many disciplines of science and engineering that depend on mathematical and computational modeling to predict and understand complex systems.
