Abstract

The concepts of depletion boundary layer engineering was applied and tested in an electrochemical microreactor for enzyme cofactor regeneration. The dimensions and operating conditions of the electrochemical microreactors are such that fluid flow is pressure driven and characterized by Reynolds number less than 10. Pressure-driven laminar flow allows for two streams of different composition to be guided over the electrodes, without the need for physical barrier. The use of micromixer concept refill the concentration boundary layers on the electrodes of microreactors.
