Problems related to physical consistency and practical application of kinetic BGK models for reactive mixtures are investigated. In particular, two approximation strategies are discussed, relevant to the different physical scenarios of slow and fast chemical reactions, respectively. The former is tested versus the steady shock problem in comparison to available hydrodynamic results. For the latter, allowing for an explicit proof of the H-theorem, a preliminary sample is shown of the space homogeneous calculations in progress.
