- Microbial depolymerization processes of polyethylene glycol are analyzed by numerical simulation. The weight distribution after cultivation of microorganisms for two and four days was used to solve an inverse problem for the molecular factor of the degradation rate. Numerical results are compared with experimental results to determine the time factor of the degradation rate. The transition of the weight distribution was simulated by solving an initial value problem.
