9.2.4 Batch Reactor Calculations for Enzyme Reactions

A mole balance on urea in a batch reactor gives

Mole balance

Because this reaction is liquid phase, V = V0, the mole balance can be put in the following form:

9-30

The rate law for urea decomposition is

9-31

Rate law

Substituting Equation (9-31) into Equation (9-30) and then rearranging and integrating, we get

9-32

We can write Equation (9-32) in terms of conversion as

Curea = Curea0 (1 ...
