COMSOL are leaders in the simulation of chemically reacting systems. Specifically, the Chemical Reaction Engineering module readily couples transport phenomena—computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and mass and energy transport—to chemical reaction kinetics to model space-dependent reacting systems and chemical reactors in 1D, 2D, 2D axisymmetry and 3D.

COMSOL version 4 features a CAPE-OPEN thermodynamic and physical properties interface, enabling COMSOL products to access property calculations from CAPE-OPEN compliant physical property packages. This provides increased accuracy in models based around the physics of flow, heat and mass transfer, where they can also include chemical reaction kinetics.

COMSOL participates in the program providing CO-LaN with licenses of process simulation software for the purpose of conducting interoperability tests (2010).
