Kinetics of D-Glucose to D-Fructose Isomerization
The aldose-ketose interconversion between D-glucose and D-fructose has been studied extensively by several investigators (1,2). For reactor design purposes the simple first order interconversion, or Michaelis-Menten reversible enzyme kinetics can appropriately describe the rate of the reaction. Only recently have attempts been made to uncover the underlying fundamental mechanisms involved (2).
