Abstract

The solution phase transport and direct electrode kinetics of electro-enzymes are described in terms of a simple model in which the steady state reaction/diffusion equation for enzyme is solved subject to physically realistic boundary conditions. Two physically realizable situations are described: the semi infinite and the membrane bounded case. Limiting expressions for the reaction flux are derived and the kinetic possibilities discussed geometrically in terms of kinetic case diagrams.
