The overall effectiveness factor for slab geometry applicable to uniform washcoats on a monolith surface for three-phase reaction systems was studied in the present work. Analytical solutions for zero-order reactions and Langmuir?Hinshelwood and power law kinetics were reported. The analysis of the theoretical results showed that not considering the geometry of the monolithic system in a proper way lead to 14% errors in reactions parameters when operating under mixed control (kinetic-internal diffusion) and negligible external mass-transfer resistances.
