The study concerns a theoretical analysis of pseudohomogeneous autothermal tubular reactors with axial dispersion of mass and heat. Based on analysis and simulations it is demonstrated that such a system can generate complex oscillatory profiles of temperature and concentration-periodic or chaotic. These profiles, especially those of aperiodic character, can seriously impair the performance of the system. The effect of three parameters on the reactor dynamics is studied, namely, the cooling medium temperature, the Lewis number and the Peclet number. We consider only relatively small values of the Lewis number in this paper.
