A multiphase reactor involves two or more phases. Most of these reactions involve gas and liquid in contact with solid. In these reactors the reaction takes place on the surface of solid catalyst. In slurry reactor, gaseous reactant is bubbled through a solution containing solid catalyst particles. The contacting equipments for gas liquid reactor includes trickle bed(packed bed), packed bubble column, agitated slurry reactors, slurry bubble column reactor and fluidized bed reactors. Current review summarizes research and investigations on bubble column reactors.
