A Kinetic Description of How Interfaces Accelerate Reactions in Micro-Compartments
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.

A kinetic expression is derived to explain how interfaces alter bulk chemical
equilibria and accelerate reactions in micro-compartments. This description,
aided by the development of a stochastic model, quantitatively predicts previous
experimental observations of accelerated imine synthesis in micron-sized
