Two-Compartment Pharmacokinetic Models for Chemical Engineers
Kanneganti, Kumud; Simon, Laurent
Chemical Engineering Education, v45 n2 p101-105 Spr 2011
The transport of potassium permanganate between two continuous-stirred vessels was investigated to help chemical and biomedical engineering students understand two-compartment pharmacokinetic models. Concepts of modeling, mass balance, parameter estimation and Laplace transform were applied to the two-unit process. A good agreement was achieved between experimental and predicted data. The setup was used by a group of students who studied the effects of dose size on the concentrations of potassium permanganate in the two vessels.
