An experimental investigation of entrainment and mixing in a reacting, uniform density, liquid plane shear layer has been carried out using laser-induced fluorescence diagnostics. Results indicate that the reactants mix on a molecular level and react at a composition that is nearly uniform across the transverse extent of the layer. The composition of the mixed fluid is found to be asymmetric with an excess of high-speed fluid, suggesting that entrainment into the shear layer is also asymmetric. These results are at variance with predictions of conventional models of turbulent transport and mixing.
