On March 29, Associate Professor, Dr. Vladilen A. Makhlin, affiliated with Karpov R&D Center and Lomonosov Moscow University of Fine Chemical Technologies, gave a talk “Engineering of Heterogeneous Catalytic Processes” at Zelinsky Institute. Dr. Makhlin is a well-known expert in mathematical modeling, computation and heterogeneous catalysis applications in basic organic and petrochemical synthesis.
It was the seventh lecture within the educational course in the heterogeneous catalysis organized by ZIOC RAS, Haldor Topsoe A/S (Denmark) and the Russian Catalytic Society.
The lecture discussed some aspects of modeling of homogenous flow reactors, heat and mass exchange industrial reactors, their classification, and principal strategies for industrial process design. , Dr. Makhlin gave particular examples of modeling of a methane oxidative condensation reactor and optimization of an industrial process of isobutene dehydrogenation over a chromium alumina catalyst.
The presenter provided the attendees with a list of latest publications useful both for PhD students and for undergraduates.
The lecture aroused a great deal of interest and a lively discussion. The next talk of the series has been scheduled for April 12 2017.
