Development Of A Novel Microreactor For Improved Chemical Reaction Conversion, Yu Liang Apr 2005

Development Of A Novel Microreactor For Improved Chemical Reaction Conversion, Yu Liang

Doctoral Dissertations

Microreactors have been widely studied over the past two decades for different chemical reactions, to develop new analytical capabilities, and to obtain high mixing performance in the reactors. The main objectives of this work are to investigate the effect of different microchannel structures on the fluid properties and mixing behavior in microreactors, and to design, fabricate, and test a novel microreactor for higher conversion in a chemical reaction. The development of this novel microreactor is intended to provide a valuable guideline in achieving enhanced chemical mixing and to make available a solid research base for optimization of the yield of ...
