Abstract

The process is important for an analysis and design of film or trickle bed reactors with volatile substrates or products and first-order, or pseudo-first-order heterogeneous reaction. In Bioengineering, it concerns certain immobilized enzymes and microbial films: the general class of oxidoreductases (O2), carbonic anhysrase (CO2), urease (NH3), oxalate decarboxylase (CO2), microbial films (O2), etc. Gaseous reactant is usually at the same time the limiting substrate due to low solubility under normal reaction conditions, and therefore it is necessary to study such systems in some detail.
