Kinetic theory of transfer in heterogeneous chemical reactors in highly dispersed porous bodies

  • 19 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


The study makes an analytic investigation of the process of transfer of a gas in chemical reactions in porous bodies on the basis of a “dusty gas” model. In the case of a free molecular condition, an expression is derived for the number of molecules which have reacted in the porous body.
