An interface tracking method for predicting bubble dissolution process is proposed. A non-diffusive scheme for advecting species concentrations is adopted to accurately compute the volume change due to mass transfer. The applicability of the proposed method is examined through several benchmark tests, i.e. mass transfer from a static bubble and that from free rising bubbles. Predicted species concentration distributions and mass transfer coefficients agree well with theoretical and empirical models. Dissolution of single carbon dioxide bubbles in a vertical pipe filled with water is also simulated. The bubbles consist only of carbon dioxide, and nitrogen and oxygen are initially dissolved in water. The volume change due to dissolution of carbon dioxide from the bubbles and evaporation of nitrogen and oxygen from water are well predicted.
