Founded in 1998, EUROKIN is a consortium of industrial and academic members whose aim is the implementation of best practise in the area of chemical reaction kinetics, particularly in the industrial environment. This includes reactor selection, high-throughput, instationary experimental techniques, intrinsic chemical reaction kinetics, assessment of transport limitations, parameter estimation, modeling, experimental design, software, reaction networks, catalyst deactivation, and workshops.
This is achieved by carrying out work in a number of areas to make the latest knowledge in these fields available to the end user.
In many cases this has resulted in the development of user-friendly tools to allow, for example, more efficient assessment of experimental conditions. Other work is aimed at evaluating software available for processing kinetic data while a number of leading academics and experts have been commissioned to produce reviews of the state-of-the-art in a number of chemical kinetics topics.
Eurokin’s 20th Anniversary Symposium
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Eurokin Consortium, a special symposium was held in The Netherlands on October 16th and 17th, 2018, at which experts in the field of reaction kinetics, who have previously hosted Eurokin projects, returned to make presentations in keynote areas of reaction kinetics relevant to the industrial world. This non-confidential symposium was open to both Eurokin and non-Eurokin members. The symposium included a review of the work of Eurokin over the last decade by way of introduction. Five of the presentations are now available via the Presentations tab above.
