For chemical reaction networks that are detailed balanced (i.e. satisfy the Wegscheider conditions), the chemical potential drives the concentrations towards their equilibrium. If these conditions are violated it becomes more challenging to describe the evolution of the concentrations in terms of thermodynamic quantities. This has to do with what one may interpret as divergence-free fluxes that do not alter the concentrations. Hence, in order to write down an energy balance, one will need to take these `reaction fluxes’ into account, which is exactly the topic of this talk. As a by-product, this approach may also simplify the study of reaction-diffusion systems.
