Transport-reaction processes are characterized by the coupling of chemical reaction with significant convection, diffusion, and dispersion phenomena, and are essential in making many high-value industrial products. Examples include the plug-flow and packed-bed reactors used to produce specialty chemicals, the Czochralski crystallization of high-purity crystals, and the chemical vapor deposition of thin films for microelectronics manufacturing, as well as the solidification of liquid solution coatings for photographic films
