We study the stability of a buoyant diffusive boundary layer in a porous medium in the presence of a first-order chemical reaction and show that it is fully determined by the non-dimensional number Da/Ra2 , where Da is the Damkholer number and Ra is the solutal Rayleigh number. The time for onset of convection is shown to increase with rising . Above a critical , no convection occurs as reaction stabilizes the diffusive layer at a finite thickness. This thickness decreases with increasing, becoming negligible at. The results are applied to CO2 geostorage, suggesting distinct regimes of CO2 transport in saline aquifers.
