Elementary Step and Approximate Models for Enzyme Kinetics
Development of kinetic models for enzymatic reactions occurring in batch reactors and simulation of elementary step and Michaelis-Menten models for batch enzymatic reactors.
Numerical Methods Utilized
Solution of simultaneous ordinary differential equations.
Simplified models for enzyme-catalyzed reactions are based on reactions that involve reversible adsorption of the enzyme E with a substrate S yielding an enzyme-substrate complex ES. This complex then reacts to yield the enzyme E and the product P. This overall reaction is presented in Equation (14-1).
