Competing reaction processes on a lattice as a paradigm for catalyst deactivation


We mobilize both a generating function approach and the theory of finite Markov processes to compute the probability of irreversible absorption of a randomly diffusing species on a lattice with competing reaction centers. We consider an N-site lattice populated by a single deep trap, and N−1 partially absorbing traps (absorption probability 0
