What is a reactor?

Introduction

The CCMV capsid was considered as a continuous stirred-tank reactor with accumulation of the product.

For an enzymatic reaction of the type:

with a reaction rate of:

We established the following in our system:

  • Uniform distribution throughout the reactor
  • K-1 >> K1 and K2
  • One enzyme per reactor/VLP
  • Tortuosity approaches zero during diffusion

Mass balance was presented as such:

INPUT = OUTPUT - DISAPPEARANCE BY REACTION + ACCUMULATION

where

Input = F0 Output = F0(1-XS) Disappearance = V(-rS Accumulation = Failed to parse (MathML with SVG or PNG fallback (recommended for modern browsers and accessibility tools): Invalid response ("Math extension cannot connect to Restbase.") from server "https://api.formulasearchengine.com/v1/":): {\displaystyle \tfrac{d[P]}{dt}}
