Two mathematical models of chemical reactions with diffusion for a single reactant in a one-dimensional volume are compared, namely, the deterministic and the stochastic models. The deterministic model is given by a partial differential equation, the stochastic one by a space-time jump Markov process. By the law of large numbers the consistency of the two models is proved. The deviation of the stochastic model from the deterministic model is estimated by a central limit theorem. This limit is a distribution-valued Gauss-Markov process and can be represented as the mild solution of a certain stochastic partial differential equation.
