submitted on 18.06.2020 and posted on 25.06.2020 by Kevin Wilson, Alexander Prophet, Grazia Rovelli, Megan Willis, Rebecca Rapf, Michael Jacobs
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 emulsions.
