Diffusion-reaction through Coated Gel Containing Enzyme Effects of Asymmetry and Sol-Gel Transition
Diffusion-reactions through coated gels containing an enzyme were studied from basical point of views by using a multimembrane, consisting of an enzyme layer sandwiched between support films. An urease and a glucoamylase were used as enzymes, and alginates (Alg) gelled by adding Ca2+ ions were used as an adding polymer. By measuring membrane potentials of the multimembranes, the changes of the charge densities due to the sol-gel transition of Alg were discussed and the network effects were found to enhance the Ca ion bindings. Total effluxes and efflux ratioes of products through the multimembrane were studied, and effects of adding Alg, its sol-gel transition and of the asymmetries on the diffusion-reactions were discussed.
