Abstract

Microbial depolymerization processes of polyethylene glycol are studied. A mathematical model, developed originally for endogenous type depolymerization processes, is applied to exogenous type de- polymerization processes. An inverse problem is solved numerically to determine a degradation rate. An initial value problem is solved numerically to simulate the transition of weight distribution.
