Abstract

The progresses made in the development on biological reactors and micromixing are discussed. The objectives of the experiment include investigation of the enzyme kinetics; comparison of the performance of immobilized enzymes and cells to that of their free counterparts in batch bioreactors, and examination of the product distribution obtained from these reactors. The experiments intende to introduce students to realistic chemical reaction engineering, which will be integrated into undergraduate courses. The aim of the experiments are also to expose students to a breadth of chemical reaction applications and techniques, and point out the limitations of the idealized models studied in such courses.
