Summary Martin Schmal's book on Heterogeneous Catalysis and its applications that appeared earlier aims at active researchers in the field, the present book on ""Chemical Reaction Engineering"" is intended for undergraduate students to teach them the basic concepts of kinetics and reactor design. ... I find this book very useful, in particular, from the point of view of a physical chemist whose expertise in reaction engineering is limited. Due to the familiar treatment of kinetics, this books represents an excellent entry into chemical engineering also for practitioners in other fields. The didactic ap
