Abstract: Most analytical solutions of interfacial mass transfer is restricted to one dimensional diffusion equations, while most numerical models make use of the physically less realistic stagnant film model. The model here has developed that simulates interface mass transfer with chemical reaction of two immiscible liquids. It was developed by simultaneously solving the Higbie Penetration model for the phenomenon of mass transfer accompanying by chemical reaction. By comparing the model result with other literature results it was concluded that the model developed for two dimensional diffusion convection equations simulates the concentration and temperature distribution satisfactorily. It has been shown that under some circumstance substantial difference exists between the literature result and numerical approximation.
