While solving a few questions from interphase mass transfer I came across this question. The question stated that when oxygen is being absorbed from air to water it is a liquid phase resistance controlled process. And the question was which phase would offer the controlling resistance if oxygen was being absorbed in a strong pyrogallate solution. From my understanding I inferred that since Oxygen is very soluble in pyrogallol the controlling resistance would in this case lie in the gas phase. But the answer in the book is given as liquid phase resistance controlled process. Where in my line of thought have I made a mistake ? Or is it that the answer given is wrong ?
