Chemical engineering refers especially to chemical reaction engineering. Indeed, chemical reactions, catalyzed or not, are at the heart of all industrial syntheses. Study of a chemical reaction, in a perfectly‐stirred reactor, permits the operator to understand the influence of the different parameters in the optimization of the chemical synthesis with a view to its industrialization.
