mass imbalance reactions ??
 
Hello !

When modeling 2 reactions (H2,O2) with intermediate species (OH) in the EDM model as: 0.5 H2 + 0.5 O2 = OH (1) OH + 0.5 H2 = H2O (2)

I have the message : mass imbalance in reactions 1 and 2 ?? although the atom number is conserved (via the stoichiometric coeficients) !!

Could you give me a hint. Thanks happy new year
