Occurrence of free convection in a plane layer in the presence of a chemical transport reaction

We consider the conditions for the occurrence of natural convection when a volatile compound is transported through a gaseous phase as a result of a chemical reaction with a solid substance. We determine the variation of the critical Rayleigh number for the principal level of instability as a function of the parameters of the process.
