Many of the industrially important processes follow a complex reaction scheme and more than one reaction takes place simultaneously for these systems. Design and scale up of these processes are important but due to the nature of the system and high numbers of the affected parameters, modeling of the complex reactions becomes correspondingly difficult. The purpose of this paper is to develop a general model, which can simplify modeling of such (or similar) complex reactions.
Virtual model is a generalized novel approach for modeling of these complex reactions. In this model, the complex reactions have been imagined as a simple reaction. Now, kinetic and structural parameters of this simple reaction have been obtained by fitting the model relationships with the experimental data.
In this work, the ability of the virtual model has been validated using the experimental data pertinent to the reduction of molybdenum disulfide and cuprous sulfide by hydrogen in the presence of lime.
