The content component is designed around a set of five temporal or spatial dimensions that have been identified as associated with the particulate nature of matter and chemical reactions: change in (a) connectivity, (b) molecular geometry, (c) aggregation, (d) state, and (e) concentration (Coppola, 1999; see Table 1).

In natural enzymes, the substrate selectivity observed is usually associated with the specific molecular geometry surrounding the active site, Selectivity of reaction is often determined by the so-called "lock and key" mechanism, in which only molecules with a specific shape can "bind" to the active centre.
