Resumo: The balance equations pertaining to the modelling of a slap-shaped bead containing immobilized enzyme uniformly distributed which catalyzes the sequential reactions of degradation of a polymeric substrate were written and analytically solved in dimensionless form. The effect of the Thiele modulus on the selectivity of consumption of each multimeric product was studied for a simple case. Whereas plain diffusional regime leads to lower selectivities than plain kinetic regime, improvements in selectivity of species A i relative to species Ai+1 may be obtained at the expense of higher Thiele moduli within a limited range when the diffusivity of A i is larger than that of A i +1, or when the pseudo first order kinetic constant describing the rate of consumption of A i is lower than that of Ai+1.
