Languages of publication
In this work, approximate analytical solution is developed using differential transformation method for finding the molar concentration of the native and denatured enzyme in terms of second-order rate constant. Also, the obtained solutions are used to study the kinetics of thermal inactivation of enzyme as applied in biotechnology. The analytical solution was validated with numerical solution using fourth- order Runge-Kutta. Good agreement was established between the numerical and approximated analytical solutions.
