Fall 2020

ChE410/510 Electrochemical Engineering, 2:10-3:25pm T, R

Due to the pandemic concerns, the delivery method of this course has been moved to online since 5th week. Demonstration of fuel cell and hands-on electrochemistry labs have been canceled. Individual appointments for lab visiting are available. Final deliverable is the team project report and presentation, no final exam. 

Read Dr.Li and students' comments on this course.

 

Topics: Electrochemical engineering principles in thermodynamics, electrode kinetics, charge and mass transport; modeling and simulation; electrocatalysis; electrochemical reactions; applications of electrochemical engineering in fuel cells, batteries and electrolyzers.

Expected learning outcomes: By the end of the course, the successful students should be able to: understand basic electrochemical engineering principles, design and analyze simple fuel cells, batteries, electrolyzers, conduct simple electrochemistry, electrocatalysis, electrochemical energy related projects.

ChE587  Advanced Chemical Reactor Design, Sweeney 1120 , 9:00-10:20am M, W 

Fundamentals of chemical reaction kinetics and their applications to the design and operation of chemical reactors. Interpretation of chemical reaction data, mechanism construction, and application to design of ideal reactors will be reviewed. Non-ideal reactor models (non-isothermal, non-ideal flow) will be overviewed. Microscopic rate theories (collision theory, transition state theory), heterogeneous catalysis, catalytic kinetics and mechanisms, effects of transport limitations, microkinetic analysis and heterogeneous catalytic reactor design will be studied.
