A mathematical model of a gas-liquid discontinuous reactor was analyzed to find the range of conditions in which the selectivity of consecutive competitive reaction can be expected to decrease on account of mass transfer. The prediction obtained from the mathematical model was tested on a model reaction of addition of chlorine to 1,5-cyclooctadiene.
