In the present study, the ANEMONA.XLT tool, an Excel template that was designed for calculation of enzyme kinetic parameters, has been successful adapted to some proposed models for dry reforming reaction, such as Eley-Rideal or Langmuir-Hinshelwood kinetic models. Model discrimination by non-linear regression analysis has been applied to data from the literature; the predicted kinetic parameters that were obtained using ANEMONA.XLT were fully comparable with those already published. Thus, the template can be a helpful and user-friendly alternative tool for researchers who do not have advanced skills in computer programming. View Full-Text
