Nonlinear mass transfer and hydrodynamic stability in solubility phenomena*

Abstract: The dissolution of gases, liquids,or solids in liquids is a heterogeneous reaction, and in many cases, the reaction rate is limited by a diffusive transfer of substance in the boundary layer at the face interphase. In modern industry, intensive interphase mass transfer processes are accomplished by large concentration gradients. This can result in a set of nonlinear effects and the difference between experimental data and predictions of the linear mass transfer theory. One of the main nonlinear effects is a result of the induction of a secondary flow at the interface boundary. This can lead to essential changes of the dissolution rate and the hydrodynamic stability of the system.
