%X A well-known model for the evolution of the (space-dependent) concentration and (lumped) temperature in a porous catalyst is considered. A sequence of invariant regions of the phase space is given, which converges to a globally asymptotically stable region $B$. Quantitative sufficient conditions are obtained for (the region $B$ to consist of only one point and) the problem to have a (unique) globally asymptotically stable steady state.
