Direct numerical simulation of a simple reaction between two scalars in a plane turbulent wall jet has been performed. In addition to mean and fluctuation intensities also higher order statistics and the probability density functions of the reacting scalars have been examined. The probability density functions shed light on the behavior of the passive and reacting scalars close to the wall and also to the near-wall characteristics of the reaction.
