where, m a and m t are swelling rate at infinite time and at time t, (g/g), k r1 is the

rate constant. The equation can be simplified into a linear function

where [Kd.sub.2] is the

rate constant of two growing macromolecular chains with undecomposed peroxides.

rate constant and product branching ratios," The Journal of Physical Chemistry A, vol.

Exponential variation in the values of k obs and Pseudo first order

rate constant was observed by the increase in the term ln At/Ao.

The

rate constant was estimated as that for the primary hydrogen atom transfer through a 8-memered ring TS in the system of [PODE.sub.1], while the activation energy was decreased by 3 kcal/mol due to the more labile nature of the secondary hydrogen atoms [27,34].

where [(RA)] is the concentration of the isomerized ligand--receptor complex bound at time t, exponent coefficient d is the apparent

rate constant of the reaction, and c is the specific binding at equilibrium.

The dissociated molecules are then transported into the release medium through diffusion, also approximated as a 1st-order process, with the

rate constant [k.sub.d].

rate constant against frying temperatures at vacuum frying conditions for colour parameters.

Abbasi, Shquirat (2008) showed that the value of microbial specific growth

rate constant ([mu]) is related to the microbial concentration and increasing that will lead to enhancement of this value.

Reaction in the water make minor contribution to the observed

rate constant. The first order

rate constant for [K.sub.[PSI]] OH ion is given by the following equation:

The activation energy correlates with the reaction

rate constant and temperature.
