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:

INTAKE= OUTFLOW- DISAPPEARANCE BY REACTION + ACCUMULATION

where

Intake= F0

Outflow= 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}}

The intake and outflow flux were determined by diffusion , considering a spherical container.

For the simplification of the diffusion phenomenon we considered:

  • Constant temperature
  • Constant pressure
  • Species B stays in a stationary state (it does not diffuse in A)
  • The container (VLP) has a spherical shape

A mass balance, taking into account a spherical envelope leads to:

where NAr represents molar flux. For NBr we obtain:

At a constant temperature the product (cDAB) is equally constant and xA=1-xB, the equation can be integrated into the following expression:
