After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Calculate the change in the transport rate of the solute due to a carrier present in the membranes.
Distinguish between the two common regimes in carrier transport: slow diffusion and fast diffusion asymptotes.
Derive expressions for the flux for these regimes and examine parametric effects.
Examine some complex examples of reactive membranes for transport of multiple solutes.
State some examples of applications of the reactive membranes.
This chapter analyzes the transport across a membrane containing a reacting species known as the carrier. The following reaction scheme is illustrative of many common cases:
