The theory of glucose-responsive composite membranes for the planar diffusion and reaction process is extended to a microsphere membrane. The theoretical model of glucose oxidation and hydrogen peroxide production in the chitosan-aliginate microsphere has been discussed in this manuscript for the first time. We have successfully reported an analytical derived methodology utilizing homotopy perturbation to perform the numerical simulation. The influence and sensitive analysis of various parameters on the concentrations of gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide are also discussed. The theoretical results enable to predict and optimize the performance of enzyme kinetics
