Once the reaction is fully specified, is necessary to go back to the batch reactor unit, to load the reaction and specify the software stopping criteria.
The temperature profile in batch reactors usually follows three-stages [3]: (i) heating of the reaction mixture until the desired reaction temperature, (ii) maintenance of the system at this temperature and (iii) cooling stage in order to minimize the formation of by-products.
