Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The rise of temperature at the gas-liquid interface due to heat generation and the relevant enhancement factor for the absorption rate are analyzed for gas absorption accompanied by an instantaneous irreversible reaction and a first-order irreversible reaction based on the film theory, allowing for the temperature dependence of the gas solubility, diffusivities of the relevant species, and the reaction rate constant. Then, the analytical exact or approximate solutions for them are presented.
