Abstract

This paper presents a mathematical model explicitly reflecting the magnetic-field-induced transitions in a biologically significant process: n-hexane oxidation. The range of the magnetic field strength is found (0.05-0.3 T) with the trend indicating significant magnetic-field-induced change in the rates of reactions involving hexane (up to 50% at 0.2 T). The equations describing the effects of the magnetic field on the photoinduced free radical reaction of oxidation involving a lipid-modeling substance, hexane, are obtained on the basis of chemical kinetics and data from a batch experiment. The magnetic-field-induced changes in n-hexane oxidation are validated using the identification technique based on the real time input-output data in a separately conducted flow-through experiment.
