(aspirin) production process by Chemical Engineering

The following should be addressed:
  • chemistry identification
  • synthetic route selection with reasons
  • thermodynamic calculations to prove endothermic/exothermic, spontaneity and reversibility/irreversibly of the overall process
  • type of catalyst used (if any)
  • kinetics and mechanism
  • reactor selection with reasons
  • waste identification and proposed treatment
  • recycling (reagents/solvents) if necessary
  • process block diagram
