A hybrid numerical/experimental technique was developed for the study of the impact of the multiphase hydrodynamics on mass transfer and chemical reactions at deformable interfaces. Different material properties and flow conditions can yield flows with qualitatively different mass transfer and transport characteristics. As many (bio-) reaction systems exhibit sensitivity to mass transport in general, and mixing specifically, it is possible to control their product distribution by tailoring the system parameters.
