Course Information

Prerequisites: one semester of chemistry and one semester of calculus. The role of the chemical process in modern society is discussed from various perspectives. Global, biological, and societal (industrial) chemical systems and their interactions are discussed in terms of how modern society is affecting their balance. Mass and heat balances are applied to batch and continuous model processes. Basic chemical reaction environments and process units are defined. Examples are taken from petroleum refining, global energy use, and agriculture. The role of chemistry in the modern industrial economy is described. The outputs of the chemical process industries, including fuel, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and electronic materials, together with unwanted by-products such as carcinogens are discussed. (First-year/sophomore elective.)
