Abstract: The complexities of heterogeneous biocatalysis are compounded under
circumstances in which transport phenomena govern the overall rate process.
A fixed bed reactor model using immobilized enzymes incorporating external
and internal diffusion and axial dispersion has been developed. Based on those
equations, computer simulations of continuous reactor operation were performed. The influence of internal and external diffusion was tested.
