1. A system for controlling chemical reaction of a feed, comprising:

  • a) a reactor;

    b) a molten bath disposed in the reactor which allows chemical reaction of the feed;

    c) means for directing the feed onto the molten bath, the molten bach causing chemical reaction of the feed to form an off-gas which includes an intermediate component;

    d) means for separating at least a portion of the intermediate component from the off-gas emitted from the reactor to form a solid and/or liquid intermediate stream; and

    e) means for injecting said stream into the molten bath for chemical reaction of the intermediate component returned to the reactor in the intermediate stream to atomic constituents and subsequent exothermic reaction of at least a portion of the atomic constituents with a component of the molten bath, whereby heat generated by the exothermic reaction initiates additional chemical reaction of the feed and of the intermediate component, thereby controlling chemical reaction of the feed.
