Introductory level textbook problems illustrating concepts in Structured Organic Particulate Systems Abstract The National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center for Structured Organic Particulate Systems (ERC-SOPS) conducts research related to pharmaceutical technology. Rowan educational materials related Textbook style problems introducing pharmaceutical topics at the level of an introductory chemical engineering course have been created, along with detailed solutions. The problems illustrate subjects and skills students would learn and use if they were to pursue a career in pharmaceutical engineering. The procedure and rationale followed in the development of the problems is outlined, and representative problems with solutions are shown. Introduction Rowan University is an Outreach Partner for the National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center for Structured Organic Particulate Systems (ERC-SOPS) led by Rutgers University. The Center conducts research related to pharmaceutical technology and coordinates educational outreach programs with member schools. Rowan U is to produce educational materials related to the pharmaceutical industry to be used by the ERC in education and outreach programs. At Rowan University, student teams take a 2-credit course during each academic term in which they work on various projects under the direction of faculty members. Professors Savelski, Farrell, and Slater are the local contacts for the ERC and have overseen student teams working on ERC projects for several terms. The purposes of the projects to date have been the creation of in-class and homework (textbook) problems focusing on pharmaceutical aspects of science and engineering. Previous teams have focused on the production of problems for students ranging in educational level from late middle school to the second year of a baccalaureate degree. The teams this semester have been focused solely on the revision of old problems and production of new problems for students of introductory chemical engineering courses, usually taught during the freshman or sophomore year. This paper presents the problems developed during this semester for use in these courses. The formatting, layout, style and focus of the problems are based on those of Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes1, a widely-used textbook for these types of courses. Courses taught with a different textbook may still use the problems developed since they cover topics such as units and conversions, material balances with and without reaction, single and multiphase systems, and energy balances.
