Here is HW #16  due on December 9th ; from Chapter 6 work problems 12,  17, 19, 29 (note the membrane has a thickness of 50 microns not 50 microM), and 36

Here is HW #15 which is due on December 5th: In chapter 6 work problems 2, 3, and 18. (Note that we worked the no convection case in class for problem 2, now analyze the convection data. Compare the oxygen consumption rate for both cases, what do you conclude? Also, note that in problem 3 the pi shouldn’t be in the term on the far right of the equation, so it should just be,   1/3 RBrockman body Gammametabolic. In problem 18 the oxygen consumption rate should be µM/sec and not microns per second)

moosedm2003_468x440Here is some useful stuff for Chapter 6,  a PDF file for a derivation we will discuss, spherediffusion . Also here is a Matlab solution for problem 6.2 without convection, problem6_2noconvection

Also here is a model for convection and diffusion with zero order consumption, Diffusion & Convection Transport

FYI Re Matlab November 15, 2016

monkey I encourage you to use Matlab to solve all of your more complicated homework problems. I will not accept any homework done using any other software and this includes Mathcad and Excel. So please use Matlab .

Here are some additional notes on some stuff we will be talking about from Chapter 5; notes about film theory Film Theory , here is some info on Example 5.7 and Notes on Example 5.7 , and here is stuff regarding the derivation and solution of equation 5.35 , noteseqn5.35 . Also here are additional details on solving Equation 5.37, noteseqn5.37 .  Mass transfer in a rectangular conduit which is similar to the analysis shown in Example 5.10 for a tube of arbitrary cross section, Mass Transfer in a Parallel Plate Channel . Also here is another example that builds on Example 5.10, example5.10addition . Here is some info on the derivation of equations 5.5 and 5.49 equations5.5and5.59 . Some additional notes on Figure 5.9 Notes on Fig. 5-9 Here are some additional notes on problem 5.11 Notes Prob. 5.11 . Here is the Matlab solutions for Example 5.15, example5.15 and example5.15part2 . A figure for gas diffusion into a falling liquid film, figure-5-5

Therapeutics Through Supramolecular Design

Matthew J. Webber, PhD, Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, The University of Notre Dame

Abstract: Using principles from supramolecular chemistry – that is, “chemistry beyond the molecule” – it is possible to create systems rationally designed at the molecular level that can address complexities associated with the deficiencies and dynamics of disease. The biological relevance of peptides, and the ability to precisely engineer supramolecular interactions through directional assembly and organized hydrogen bonding, enables the generation of platforms that can be utilized as functional therapeutic (more…)
