The progress of an isothermal chemical reaction on a catalytic surface, which is located in a laminar hydrodynamic flow field of large Reynolds number, is analyzed. Past analytical investigations have been restricted primarily to chemical reactions in fully velocity developed flow fields subject frequently to one or both of the following approximations. (i) The actual velocity distribution is replaced by a flow of uniform velocity. (ii) The concentrations of the reactants on the catalytic surface are prescribed subject to certain hypotheses concerning the rate controlling mechanism. In this investigation the principal aim has been to calculate the actual surface concentration in a laminar boundary layer flow without unduly sacrificing the hydrodynamic features or introducing unnecessary assumptions about the effective over‐all reaction mechanism. The method presented, which is related to an analysis of convective heat transfer from a nonisothermal surface, is applicable to arbitrary catalytic reaction mechanisms in a certain class of laminar boundary layer type flow fields.
