1. A method for converting a gaseous organic component of an organic feed gas stream, wherein said organic component is essentially gaseous, to form a product in at least one phase, comprising the steps of:

  • a) forming a process zone, wherein the process zone includes a process molten bath and a process gas space disposed over the process molten bath;

    b) dispersing molten droplets of said molten bath across the process gas space;

    c) directing the feed gas stream directly into the process gas space of the process zone, wherein the gaseous organic component is exposed to said molten droplets; and

    d) directing a co-reactant into the process molten bath, whereby the gaseous organic component reacts with the co-reactant to form a product in at least one phase.
