Abstract

Abstract The modelling of photochemical reactors has been rigorously treated describing the radiation field within the realm of radiant energy transfer. This kind of approach causes a heavy integro-differential problem to arise any time the reacting species is the absorbing one while the differential nature of the model equations is maintained in the case of photosensitized reactions in a purely absorbing medium. An annular photoreactor has been considered for this last situation and the influence on the absorption process of the most parameters has been investigated for both the cases of a reactor shielded and unshielded by a reflector.
