Procédé/Produit de rupture

07:35 Jan 9, 2004
French to English translations [PRO]
Marketing / Petroleum industry R & D
French term or phrase: Procédé/Produit de rupture
The context is the petrochemical industry, Refining/Marketing, Research and Development. Two examples (sadly, both from PPT docs, so not much context, I'm afraid).
Could it be breakaway or breakthrough?

rupture process

rupture of a chemical bond


an exothermal oxidation reaction in which the heat evolved results from the rupture of chemical bonds.

The force required to rupture the streptavidin-biotin complex was calculated here by computer simulations. The computed force agrees well with that obtained by recent single molecule atomic force microscope experiments. These simulations suggest a detailed multiple-pathway rupture mechanism involving five major unbinding steps. Binding forces and specificity are attributed to a hydrogen bond network between the biotin ligand and residues within the binding pocket of streptavidin. During rupture, additional water bridges substantially enhance the stability of the complex and even dominate the binding interactions. In contrast, steric restraints do not appear to contribute to the binding forces, although conformational motions were observed.
