The balance laws and linear constitutive equations of the theory of reacting mixtures for micropolar fluids are derived. Theoretical relations include the assumptions that the elements of micropolar fluids do not undergo deformations and have different temperature and concentration fields of constituents of the mixture. The theory is developed for prediction of flow, heat and mass transfer in fluid suspensions. Diffusion through the layer of fluid suspension is studied as the example.
