In the first of a series on kinetics and reactor design, this 1.5 hr workshop lays the foundation of chemical kinetics. In line with the content on the PE exam for Chem E’s, we’ll look at the basics of reactions, rate constants, and liquid reactions. We’ll then look at kinetics of bioreactions, reactions on supported catalysts, polymer reactions, and possibly the pharmacokinetic reactions of biotransmitters and blocker drugs with their bioreceptors. In an active learning workshop, you’ll listen for a bit and then with a partner apply what you’ve heard.

Next fall workshops will be offered applying kinetics to simple liquid reactor design, and to bioreactor/fermenter design.


Richard Skeirik holds degrees in biochemistry, chemical engineering and psychology. Wearing one hat, he is a process engineer specializing in dynamics, simulation and advanced control of chemical, polymer, and refining processes; inventor of 17 US patents in that field; and a patent litigation consultant/expert witness. Wearing another hat, he is an expert in personality disorders and author and publisher of seven books in that field.

He has worked for DuPont Engineering in process R&D; manufacturing support; artificial intelligence; manufacturing software IT; advanced process control consulting; and patent prosecution and licensing. He has worked independently as patent infringement litigation consultant; and runs an e-commerce enterprise. He is a registered PE in Delaware and earnestly seeks employment in chemical engineering.
