The design of reactors with a dispersed gas in a liquid phase, e.g., bubble columns, is often based on rather roughly estimated parameters. To obtain a better understanding of the influence and interaction of the fluid dynamics and the mass transfer in the presence of a chemical reaction of NO and Fe(EDTA) in the liquid phase, the complex system of a bubbly flow is here reduced to single-bubble investigations. For this purpose, mass transfer is investigated with and without chemical reaction to be able to differentiate between various influencing factors and determined enhancement caused by the chemical reaction. Two experimental setups are applied, namely, the first one with two moving cameras where the velocity is adapted to the rising velocity of the bubble, and the second one is a counter-current-flow cell.
