A general, but simple, analytical technique is proposed for the solution of diffusion-controlled reaction problems (as, for example, occur during the photooxidation of polymers). With this technique the stationary concentration and reaction rate profiles can be calculated for arbitrary reaction kinetics and concentration dependent diffusion coefficients. As an example, the photo-oxidation of polyolefins is considered, which involves complex, concentration dependent, reaction kinetics. Excellent agreement betw…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
