We investigate a generalization of the model of Solc and Stockmayer to describe the diffusion-controlled reactions between chemically anisotropic reactants taking into account the partially reflecting conditions on two parts of the reaction surface. The exact solution of the relevant mixed boundary-value problem was found for different ratios of the intrinsic rate constants. The results obtained may be used to test numerical programs that describe diffusion-controlled reactions in real systems of particles with anisotropic reactivity.

    n approximate closed-form solution, which is based on the Law of Additive Reaction Times for a fluid-solid reaction formulated previously, is presented for the reaction of a fluid with a porous solid in which there is a change of porosity and, thus, effective diffusivity during the reaction. The...

    The algorithm by Northrup, Allison, and McCammon [J. Chem. Phys. 80, 1517 (1984)] has been used for two decades for calculating the diffusion-influenced rate-constants of enzymatic reactions. Although many interesting results have been obtained, the algorithm is based on the assumption that...

    We present a minimal discrete model for the propagation of energy through a 3D granular medium impacted by a particulate projectile. In this model, energy is transferred from grain to grain via binary collision events. This description can be successfully applied to the analysis of the collision...
