Topic Date Time Presenter Description Safety Moment
Mass Transport and Reaction in Microstructured Gas/Liquid Reactors August 30, 2012 4 PM Kristin Hecht Gas/liquid reactions are important to many biological and industrial processes. Microstructured gas/liquid reactors offer excellent heat transport properties, interfacial areas orders of magnitude larger than conventional devices, and can potentially be operated over a wider range of liquid holdups.Values of the interfacial area and mass transport coefficients can be extracted from experiments of chemical reaction.
