The use of periodic operation to improve the performance of continuous stirred tank reactors

The influence of enforced periodic concentration variations on a continuous stirred tank reactor was studied theoretically. The unsteady-state-processing becomes advantageous under certain conditions. This can be shown for an irreversible consecutive-competing reaction. The yield and selectivity of the intermediate product can exceed the values obtainable at steady-state-processing in the mentioned reactor.
