Mass transfer accompanied by a chemical reaction through a spherical surface is investigated. A concentric, stagnant, spherical concentration boundary-layer is assumed around the small particles. Based on this assumption, mass transfer rates are given for three cases, namely, for a first-order irreversible reaction, first-order reversible and second-order irreversible reactions. The mass transferred unreacted across the boundary-layer into the bulk of the continuous phase is also given. This allows the study of mass transfer accompanied by chemical reaction of any finite reaction rate regime.
