A dilatometric technique is reported for studying simultaneous mixing and reaction as a function of time in batch systems. Volume-averaged fractional conversion is determined from small volume changes without sampling or flow disturbances.
Data are obtained for very fast and intermediate speed reactions in a turbulent, unbaffled, stirred laboratory reactor.
