Photochemical reactor modeling: a case-study problem. Although radiation is important in heat transfer, an analogous model can be used in the design of photochemical reactors. The modeling of these reactors….
examine how the dispersion coefficient changes with the adsorption equilibrium constant.
A model for chromatographic separation: a case-study problem. An important application of Taylor dispersion is in chromatography. Here pulses of a mixture of solutes are introduced into one end of a packed-bed reactor containing an adsorbent and washed through the bed with a solvent. Since different species adsorb and diffuse at different rates, we obtain a separation. The axial dispersion will often interfere in the separation (it causes a pulse broadening). Your goal is to set up a model for chromatographic processes wherein you should include the adsorption on the solids as an additional term. You can examine how the dispersion coefficient changes with the adsorption equilibrium constant.
