Abstract

The effect of the water-gas reaction as a parallel running process is investigated by adding two elementary steps to the reaction mechanism and the rate equations defined by Berty et al. The methanol synthesis and shift reactions interact, mostly through the common step of hydrogen chemisorption. The detailed rate expression is derived and the Vekron-I Test Problem is developed. Analysing a simplified rate equation version it can be stated that the driving force expression for both processes is incorporated in both rates.
