Syllabus
Prerequisites: Fundamentals of Organic chemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, reactors, and unit operations
Target skills and knowledge: Giving tools to evaluate industrial chemical processes by analysis of mass and energy fluxes.
Applying such tools on important industrial applications.
Giving economical, environmental and safety evaluation of chemical industrial processes.Will also be applied to different processes the skills acquired in other basic courses.
Examination methods: The final written examination (100% of the final grade) involves a numeric problem related to mass and energy balances, an in-depth analysis of a specific process of organic industrial chemistry and some open-ended theoretical questions. The objective of the test is to evaluate:

a. the ability to analyze a process from both the thermodynamic and the kinetic point of view, in order to find the optimal conditions of maximum yield;
b. the choice of the optimal reactor and the analysis of the most important "unit operations";
c. the ability to choose the most suitable materials according to the critical issues of the process;
d. the environmental related impacts and the process safety management ;
Assessment criteria: Proficiency in analysing a chemical process in terms of mass and energy balances, safety and yield
Course unit contents: New trends in industrial organic chemistry. Yield of a chemical process. Operating conditions selection based on thermodynamic and kinetic considerations. Catalysts: chemisorptions, poisoning and ageing of catalysts, promoters. Reactors for heterogeneous catalytic reactions. Multifunctional reactor: MTBE production.
Synthesis of polymer: chain and step polymerization mechanism. Kinetics equations. Industrials polymerization processes.
Industrial production of olefins, acetylene and aromatics. Derivatives of unsaturated hydrocarbons. Oxidation reaction of hydrocarbons and olefins. Homogenous and heterogeneous phase processes. Hydro-dehydrogenation, alkylation, hydration processes and oxo-synthesis. Industrial polymerization processes. Artificial and synthetic fibers. Material and energy balances.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Classroom lecture using also slides; discussion of case studies
Additional notes about suggested reading: The slides used during the lessons will be available for download. Other books will be suggested during classroom lecture
