This paper studies the asymptotic formation and the inner structure of propagating reaction-diffusional fronts. A reversible second order adsorbtion type reaction is assumed, yielding at local equilibrium the Langmuir isotherm. Three limiting kinetic situations are discussed - that of local equilibrium, reaction control and film (pore) diffusion control. The front formation, occurring when the appropriate systems parameters tend to their specific limits, is traced in each case as an asymptotic process, upon the evolution of an initial concentration jump in a slab. The front structure associated with the above kinetic limits is described and discussed. Thus in conditions of local reaction equilibrium the front thickness is proportional to the square root of time, the inner front structure is selfsimilar and is not characterized by any typical length scale.
