microKinetic Engine.


microKinetic Engine is a user friendly software package which opens up the door to unraveling complex chemical reactions with a push of a button. Kinetic performance can be simulated for different reactor types and compared to experimental data. The underlying reaction network intricacy can vary from simple, user-defined, single step to 1000+ elementary steps containing mechanisms, automatically generated by the built-in features.The software provides direct feedback on model adequacy and predictability through data visualization and statistical interpretation.

USER FRIENDLY.

In contrast to competitor software, microKinetic Engine does not require any programming effort thanks to smart interfacing.

REACTOR TYPES.

Four ideal reactor types can be simulated with microKinetic Engine: (semi-)batch reactor, plug flow reactor and continuous stirred tank reactor.

REACTION NETWORK.

The reaction network is defined either manually by smart interfacing of through an optional reaction network generator.

TWO MODES.

Both kinetic simulations as model regression to user defined experimental data can be performed in an automated manner.

ASSESSMENT.

The model performance and regression results can be assessed easily by a large number of statistical tests and
visual tools.

AND BEYOND...

Through the implementation of User Defined Equation, models beyond chemical kinetics can be built, regressed and assessed.
