Abstract

For a permeable catalyst pellet, the reactive-diffusive problem with first-order Arrhenius kinetics is studied. Steady solutions under Robin boundary conditions are derived for the cylindrical geometry in the limit of large activation energy. The response of the system exhibits three-fold and five-fold multiplicities as well as closed loops.
