    In this thesis the focus is on the effect of the oxygen distribution on the performance of the PBMR in terms of conversion and selectivities. A detailed description of the oxygen transport through the membrane is not considered in this work. Here, the membrane is considered as an ideal distributor with a fixed membrane flow, independent from the reaction conditions inside the packed bed. This assumption enables an independent discussion of the influence of the oxygen distribution on the performance of the PBMR.
