The bubble rising in viscous liquids is enough common in many industrial processes and an important fundamental problem in fluid dynamics. In the current work, we deal with the numerical modeling of a single gaseous bubble that rises in liquid. In particular, we are interested in benzene alkylation that is conducted by the chemical interaction of ethylene and benzene in the presence of the Lewis catalyst. Thus, the rate of absorption is the main focus of this work.
