The calculation of the rate of gas/liquid metal reactions of the type, A(gas) plus B(dissolved) equals AB (gas), is described, assuming that the rates are controlled by transport. Mixed control is shown to occur in a number of important gas/liquid metal reactions. This leads to slow rates which may be erroneously ascribed to control by a chemical step. The definition of parameters which can be calculated to indicate without ambiguity whether control is mixed or lies in the gas or liquid phases is discussed.
