About the Course

Would you like to brush up on—or learn more about—the basic theories of chemical kinetics and reaction mechanisms? This on-demand course will refresh your knowledge of chemical-kinetic principles, reaction rates and rate constants (and their dependence on temperature and pressure) in gaseous, solid and liquid states.

  • chemical-kinetic principles
  • reaction rates and constants
  • basic theories

Prior knowledge of biology, chemistry or basic physics is recommended.

What You Will Learn

  • Understand how chemical kinetics fits in with real-world problems
  • Be able to converse with both experimentalists and theoreticians on a technical level
  • Implement new, effective techniques for reactive flows in your group or company

Who Should Attend

Professionals who wish to enhance their success by learning (or brushing up on) the basics of chemical kinetics and how this study relates to real-world problems.

Ideal for researchers who regularly work in the field of reactive flows or chemical kinetics, or managers and team leaders who communicate with such researchers on regular bases.
