MULTIPHASE REACTORS
MULTIPHASE REACTORSMultiphase reactors include, for instance, gas–liquid–solid and gas–liquid–liquid reactions. In many important cases, reactions between gases and liquids occur in the presence of a porous solid catalyst. The reaction typically occurs at a catalytic site on the solid surface. The kinetics and transport steps include dissolution of gas into the liquid, transport of dissolved gas to the catalyst particle surface, and diffusion and reaction in the catalyst particle. Say the concentration of dissolved gas A in equilibrium with the gas-phase concentration of A is CaLi. Neglecting the gas-phase resistance, and assuming that no catalyst particles are located …
