We study the properties of the reaction front formed in a reversible reaction-diffusion process, A+B?gkC, with initially separated reagents. It is shown that the dynamics of the front can be described in terms of a crossover between irreversible scaling at short times (tg-1) and reversible scaling at long times (tg-1). The reversible regime is dominated by diffusion and the critical exponents characterizing the properties of the front are independent of dimension.
