Abstract:The overall reaction rate of an absorbed gaseous reactant in a liquid solution is usually influenced by the combined effect of the reaction kinetics and heat and mass transfer rates. The kinetic study of such reactions requires the thorough understanding of the physical rate processes accompanied by a reaction.
A gas-liquid contactor was devised to facilitate very high mass transfer rates so that its inhibition effect of mass transfer on the process of fast gas-liquid reaction would be eliminated in many situations of practical interest. In the final design of the reactor, a rotor creates a liquid layer on the inner wall of a cooling jacket and provides strong mixing at the gas-liquid interface. The mass transfer rates achieved in the reactor were measured by a chemical technique in which sodium sulfite was oxidized in the fast reaction regime. A short study was conducted on the kinetics of sulfite oxidation to support the results of the mass transfer studies.
