Why is kinetic modeling conducted and how does it provide you with the quantitative data that you are seeking? This webinar captures the fundamentals of microkinetic modeling, specifically to develop, simulate, analyze, and use detailed kinetic models. Using the fundamentals learned, we will discuss how microkinetic modeling translates into process and product design. This webinar will also provide an overview of software tools that are currently available and how they can meet your needs.

In this 60-minute webinar, you will learn:

  • The benefits of detailed kinetic modeling
  • How to approach kinetic problems and catalyst discovery
  • How to solve reactor design and catalyst discovery
  • How to develop and use kinetic models for process and product design
  • The various software tools available

This webinar is part of ongoing Education & Workforce Development efforts of the RAPID Manufacturing Institute. Webinars are free to RAPID Members.
