The CFD model of mixing and heating process of the two-component reaction mixture in a small-scale reactor is presented. The simulated results have been compared with experimental data and given the opportunity to evaluate the application of the proposed approach to the development and design of large-scale apparatus for the synthesis of allyl-1,3,4-trimethylcyclohex-3-enecarboxylate in industrial conditions.
