### Abstract

A mathematical model and its solution were developed to calculate the mass transport through catalytic membrane layer by means of explicit, closed expressions even in the case of the nonlinear Michaelis-Menten reaction kinetics andlor of variable mass transport - diffusion coefficient, convective velocity - parameters. Some typical examples on the Thiele modulus, applying the Michaelis-Menten kinetics and its limiting cases, namely the first-order kinetic (KM»cm) and zero- order kinetic (cm»KM) are shown for the prediction of the concentration distribution and the mass transfer rates as a function of the reaction modulus, namely first-order- and the zero-order reactions. It was shown the significant differences of the results obtained by the three different reaction orders.
