The existing a‐priori bound of the temperature solution of the axial dispersion one‐dimensional model of the tubular reactor does not take parameters like Damköhler number into consideration. Utilizing the properties of the nonlinear term in the model equations enables one to find improved upper bounds which depend on all the model parameters. Only for the case of Lewis number greater than unity and Damköhler number sufficiently large, is the existing bound not improved.
