Abstract

This study shows an efficient applicability of computational techniques to analyses of microbial depolymerisation process. Microorganisms were cultivated in a culture media in which a polymer was a sole carbon source, and weight distributions before and after cultivation were introduced into inverse analysis for a molecular factor and a time factor of a degradation rate. An inverse problem for two parameter values associated with the time factor was solved numerically. Once the molecular factor and the time factor were given, microbial depolymerization process was simulated.
