A Two-Species Reaction-Diffusion Problem with One Static Reactant: The Case of Higher Order Kinetics

Reaction-diffusion equations are well-studied due to their common occurrence in many areas of chemistry, physics, biology and engineering (e.g. [1], [2]). Models for reaction-diffusion processes

Approximating the large time asymptotic reaction zone solution for fractional order kinetics A nB m

Consider the reaction front formed when two initially separated reactants A and B are brought into contact and react at a rate proportional to $A^n B^m$ when the concentrations $A$ and $B$ are

On the interplay between fast reaction and slow diffusion in the concrete carbonation process: a matched-asymptotics approach

AbstractA matched-asymptotics approach is proposed to show the occurrence of two distinct characteristic length scales in the carbonation process. The separation of these scales arises due to the

Length scales in the concrete carbonation process and water barrier effect : a matched asymptotics approach

The reaction CO2 +Ca(OH)2 → H2O+CaCO3 takes place in unsaturated porous concrete-based materials with separated reactants, where CO2 and H2O are diffusing and Ca(OH)2 can be assumed as immobile. The

Transverse transport of solutes between co-flowing pressure-driven streams for microfluidic studies of diffusion/reaction processes

We consider a situation commonly encountered in microfluidics: two streams of miscible liquids are brought at a junction to flow side by side within a microchannel, allowing solutes to diffuse from

It is shown that deionization shocks accelerate and sharpen in narrowing channels, while they decelerate and weaken, and sometimes disappear, in widening channels, allowing for slow variations in surface charge or channel geometry.

Asymptotics of Coupled Reaction-Diffusion Fronts With Multiple Static and Diffusing Reactants: Uranium Oxidation in Water Vapor

Large-time asymptotic solutions for the reaction-diffusion front between one static reactant and one diffusing reactant are known. These states apply to single-step reactions with a mean-field reac...



Space-and time-resolved diffusion-limited binary reaction kinetics in capillaries: experimental observation of segregation, anomalous exponents, and depletion zone

An experimental investigation of one-dimensional, diffusion-limited A+B→C chemical reactions is reported. The persistence of reactant segregation and the formation of a depletion zone is observed and

Numerical solutions of the reaction-diffusion equations are in good quantitative agreement with the predictions of this theory, with anomalous values for the exponents describing the moments of the density and reaction profiles.

The results agree with the scaling theory of Galfi and Racz for the long-time behavior of the system indicating that the scaling assumption is valid and that the neglect in the scaled theory of concentration fluctuations and of the discrete nature of the reactants is not important.

Scaling anomalies in reaction front dynamics of confined systems.

We study the kinetics of the reaction front for diffusion-reaction systems of the form A+B→C which are confined to one dimension, and in which the reactants are initially separated. For the case in

Fluctuation effects and multiscaling of the reaction-diffusion front for A+B to OE

We consider the properties of the diffusion-controlled reaction A+B to OE in the steady state, where fixed currents of A and B particles are maintained at opposite edges of the system. Using

Anomalous kinetics of reaction diffusion fronts

Abstract We review our recent studies on the A + B → C reaction—diffusion system with initially separated components and describe the novel kinetic properties of the reaction front. When the reaction

Reaction front dynamics in diffusion-controlled particle-antiparticle annihilation : experiments and simulations

When electrons diffuse into a domain of holes, or defects into a domain of anti-defects, or molecules A meet molecules B with a reaction : A+B→C, what are the time characteristics of the reaction
