Oscillations in Metabolic Reaction Networks
Application ID: 99781
Oscillating chemical reactions were long thought to simply not exist in homogeneous solution, and even the poster child, the Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction, met such an initial skepticism, that even though it was discovered in 1951, it took almost 20 years for it to gain widespread fame. Since this seminal discovery, many more oscillating reaction networks have been discovered, and this model studies the oscillatory behavior of a key part of glycolysis, the ubiquitous metabolic pathway common to a large part of the living organisms on earth.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
