“Chemical engineering is the field of applied science that employs physical, chemical, and biological rate processes for the betterment of humanity.” This opening sentence of Chapter 1 has been the underlying paradigm of chemical engineering. Chemical Engineering: A New Introduction is designed to enable the student to explore the activities in which a modern chemical engineer is involved by focusing on mass and energy balances in liquid-phase processes. Problems explored include the design of a feedback level controller, membrane separation, hemodialysis, optimal design of a process with chemical reaction and separation, washout in a bioreactor, kinetic and mass transfer limits in a two-phase reactor, and the use of the membrane reactor to overcome equilibrium limits on conversion. Mathematics is employed as a language at the most elementary level. Professor Morton M. Denn incorporates design meaningfully; the design and analysis problems are realistic in format and scope. Students using this text will appreciate why they need the courses that follow in the core curriculum.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"Denn’s book is a compact introduction to material and energy balances that gives a flavor for the kinds of problems with which chemical engineers grapple."
John H. Seinfeld, AiChE JournalSee more reviews
"If your students are well-prepared, the text provides a well-structured framework to explore the fundamentals of chemical engineering analysis and to give an overview of the breadth of opportunities that lie ahead for chemical engineers."
