The Definitive, Fully Updated Guide to Solving Real-World Chemical Reaction Engineering Problems
The fourth edition of Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering is a completely revised version of the worldwide best-selling book. It combines authoritative coverage of the principles of chemical reaction engineering with an unsurpassed focus on critical thinking and creative problem solving, employing open-ended questions and stressing the Socratic method. Clear and superbly organized, it integrates text, visuals, and computer simulations to help readers solve even the most challenging problems through reasoning, rather than by memorizing equations.
Thorough coverage of the fundamentals of chemical reaction engineering forms the backbone of this trusted text. To enhance the transfer of core skills to real-life settings, three styles of problems are included for each subject
H. Scott Fogler has updated his classic text to provide even more coverage of bioreactions, industrial chemistry with real reactors and reactions, and an even broader range of applications, along with the newest digital techniques, such as FEMLAB. The fourth edition of Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering contains wide-ranging examples—from smog to blood clotting, ethylene oxide production to tissue engineering, antifreeze to cobra bites, and computer chip manufacturing to chemical plant safety.About the CD-ROM
The CD-ROM offers numerous enrichment opportunities for both students and instructors, including the following Learning Resources:
Throughout the book, icons help readers link concepts and procedures to the material on the CD-ROM for fully integrated learning and reference.
H. Scott Fogler is the Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, Vennema Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan. His research interests include flow and reaction in porous media, fused chemical relations, gellation kinetics, and chemical reaction engineering problems in the petroleum industry. He has graduated 37 Ph.D. students and has more than 200 refereed publications in these areas. Fogler is the AIChE 2008 President-elect. He has chaired ASEE’s Chemical Engineering Division, served as director of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, earned the Warren K. Lewis Award from AIChE for contributions to chemical engineering education, and received the Chemical Manufacturers Association’s National Catalyst Award. He is the co-author of the bestselling textbook Strategies for Creative Problem Solving, Second Edition (Prentice Hall, 2008).
Fogler is a must for every student of Reaction Engineering.
This book is good not only as a text book because of the simple way it presents the subject, the problems, and the complementary examples on the CD.
Great book, but it was missing the CD ROM that it should come with so I am unable to complete certain assignments without borrowing a friends.
Good book with the exception of the massive size! I found it to be very helpful for my kinetics course and am holding onto it to use again senior year in my design class. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Delta0n3

The book seems to serve its purpose, and some of the questions are pretty funny. Never before have I had a homework problem say "Go home and take a break". Anyway. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Grant H.
The edges were bent and it was coming off the spine. Also, it did not come with the companion cd as promised.Published 6 months ago by James Watkins
I know this book since I was an undergraduation student. Now, I'm a professor and I use the book as a text book for my class.Published 8 months ago by Josi Alberto
Great Quality. CD included.
I really love this book with its language.
Fogler is a great writer for engineering. Read more
This is a good book. The explanation is very clear. There are a lot of useful examples to help you understand the reactor design well.Published 11 months ago by Pengcheng Li
I actually enjoy reading this book because it is organized very well. Good job Fogler.
I do not like Chemical Engineering however
The author puts his own humor/college leanings in the book, but it's fairly easy to follow for me, when I was a Junior.Published 14 months ago by Ryan Friedrich
