van de Vusse Reaction Scheme in a Continuous Stirred-Tank Reactor
Consider the following complex reaction scheme, called the van de Vusse mechanism, taking place in a continuous stirred-tank reactor (CSTR) with a residence time equal to :[more]
The feed to the reactor is pure . Initially the reactor contains only species .
This Demonstration plots the concentrations of the chemical species , , , and versus time (in blue, magenta, brown, and green, respectively) for user-set values of the rate constants.[less]
