We present, for a class of industrially relevant chemical reactions with two educts the dependence of stability on important chemical parameters, such as coolant, dilution and diffusion rates. The main analytical tools are generalized upscaling balance condition for the equilibria concentrations and spectral properties of corresponding operators. Although we illustrate the stability analysis for a model reactor (2 educts, E1 and E2), it should be emphasized that our approach is applicable to more complex reaction mechanisms.
