To cope with nowadays MAS complexity, nature-inspired coordination models and languages gained increasing attention: in particular, biochemical coordination models. Being intrinsically stochastic and self-organising, the effectiveness of their outcome likely depends on a correct parameter tuning stage. In this paper, we focus on chemical reactions rates, showing that simply imitating chemistry “as it is” may be not enough for the purpose of effectively engineer complex, self-organising coordinated systems such as MoK.
