A mathematical model to describe the enzyme reaction, mass transfer and heat effects in the calorimetric system is discussed. The model is based on non-stationary diffusion Equation containing a nonlinear term related to immobilize liver esterase by flow calorimetry. This paper presents the complex numerical methods (Adomian decomposition method, Homotopy analysis and perturbation method) to solve the non-linear differential Equations that depict the diffusion coupled with a non-linear reaction terms. Approximate analytical expressions for substrate concentration have been derived for all values of parameters α, β and γE. These analytical results are compared with the available numerical results and are found to be in good agreement.
