2008. p. 172 CHAPTER 4 Semi-Batch Reactors REACTOR CHOICE: BATCH OR SEMI-BATCH REACTOR Consider the oxidation of an alcohol with molecular oxygen RaCH2 OH 1 O2 -RaCOOH 1 H2 O This reaction is highly exothermic. If we place a complete charge of both reactants in a batch reactor, we will be unable to control the temperature of the reaction. However, if we charge the reactor with alcohol and define oxygen as the limiting reagent and meter it into the reactor at a rate controlled by the temperature of the reaction volume, then we can conduct this oxidation safely.

If we plan to scale a batch process using a regressed polynomial equation, then each of the coefficients of the polynomial must respond to changes in process temperature. Consider the generalized polynomial equation for product formation ½PŠ 5 α 1 βt 2 γt2 1 δt3 2 εt4 1 ζt5 2 ηt6 where P denotes product. α is the initial product concentration; thus, it will be zero at the start of the reaction, unless product forms before the first sample is taken. β is the initial reaction rate which must relate to process temperature as β 5 Ae2E=RT The other polynomial coefficients must also respond to changes in process temperature.
