This correlation is an Arrhenius type of relation with an energy of activation of 89,000 J/mol. R is the gas constant (8.314 J/mol K). The value of 89,000 J/mol is an activation energy that follows from observations of the effect of temperature on imax of microorganisms (1).

For a given electron donor/acceptor combination, the maximal rate of Gibbs energy made available per unit biomass (qm* in kJ Gibbs energy per C-mol biomass per hour) follows then as max
