[en] We build a rigorous nonequilibrium thermodynamic description for open chemical reaction networks of
elementary reactions. Their dynamics is described by deterministic rate equations with mass action
kinetics. Our most general framework considers open networks driven by time-dependent chemostats.
The energy and entropy balances are established and a nonequilibrium Gibbs free energy is introduced.
The difference between this latter and its equilibrium form represents the minimal work done by the
chemostats to bring the network to its nonequilibrium state. It is minimized in nondriven detailed-balanced
networks (i.e., networks that relax to equilibrium states) and has an interesting information-theoretic
interpretation. We further show that the entropy production of complex-balanced networks (i.e., networks
that relax to special kinds of nonequilibrium steady states) splits into two non-negative contributions: one
characterizing the dissipation of the nonequilibrium steady state and the other the transients due to
relaxation and driving. Our theory lays the path to study time-dependent energy and information
transduction in biochemical networks.
