Organic oxidations, which typically involve mass transfer with chemical reaction, are used commercially to produce a host of chemicals. While mass transfer limitations have often been suspected in these reactions, no information is available on mass transfer coefficients under the usual conditions. This paper describes the measurement of mass transfer coefficients under reaction conditions by two methods. The data from the two methods are satisfactorily self consistent and show up some deficiencies of existing correlations in predicting mass transfer coefficients under the conditions.
