Abstract

Toor's (1969) hypothesis is extended to the second‐order, series‐parallel reaction. A second closure relates the mixing for the second reaction to the first. The equations are solved for conversion and selectivity for a turbulent reactor configuration. The analysis is extended to incorporate concepts of residence time distribution, segregation, and maximum mixedness.
