Oxidation models based on bulk reactions will be described and asymptotic methods applied to derive related surface reaction models as limiting cases. Properties of the resulting heterogeneous reaction models, which take the form of moving boundary problems, will also be outlined. The work is joint with JD Evans of the University of Bath.
