Application of ideal reactors to studies in atmospheric chemistry

Description: Mass-transfer effects and surface reactions may severely obscure the observation of homogeneous chemical reaction rates from experimental reactor data. Such problems are particularly pertinent to studies in the atmospheric sciences, owing to the tendency for increased surface-reaction interference at the low concentrations usually of interest. Criteria are presented for ideal behavior in three basic types of experimental reactors. Under conditions satisfying these criteria the effects of competing surface reactions can be accounted for quantitatively, allowing the true homogeneous effect to be observed. Data from tubular reactors can be analyzed accurately even under some nonideal conditions. The available solutions to tubular reactor models useful for this purpose were compiled and tabulated.
