The theory of gas absorption accompanied by fast pseudo-mth order reaction was used to obtain values of effective interfacial area in 10,15 and 20 cm i.d. packed columns which were operated co-currently. A variety of ceramic, metal and plastic packings were used. The range of superficial gas and liquid velocities was 50-300 cm/sec, and 0.1-3.5 cm/sec, respectively. Values of gas side mass transfer coefficients for some of the packings were also obtained. In addition some data were obtained for the counter-current mode of operation.
