Abstract: We study the influence of natural convection on stability of reaction fronts in liquids. In our previous article [6] we considered the case where the reactants were in a liquid phase and the product of the reaction was solid. In this paper we study the case where both of them are liquid. We carry out a linear stability analysis and show that the results are essentially different compared to the case of a solid product.
