The purpose of this report is to review some recent advances and to try to gather some useful information from the available literature on the study of laminar boundary layer problems including effects of chemical reactions. To provide a background for the study, the basic relations governing the dissociated laminar boundary layer is outlined briefly. Various methods in analyses of dissociated boundary layer problems are investigated and compared in the flat plate case. Particular attention is directed to the discussion of the effects resulting from the consideration of strong self-induced pressure field, of reacting external inviscid flow and of the thermodynamic properties of the reacting gas mixture. Such considerations are usually neglected for the purpose of simplifying the problems. Author
