New Model for Bimolecular Reactions in Nanoreactors

Reactants A and B diffuse through the shell and react to product C at the catalytically active nanoparticle (yellow) inside.

Nanoreactors are tiny systems which facilitate specific chemical reactions, as a catalyst does. Many are found in biological systems, such as certain proteins. But chemists are also able to synthesise artificial nanoreactors to control chemical reactions. An important class of these nanoreactors has a "yolk
