Abstract

Chemical kinetics is the study of the parameters affecting the rates of chemical reactions. With this knowledge, the appropriate reaction conditions can be chosen for the promotion of a particular process; indeed, where competing reactions occur, a study of the reaction mechanism will identify the rate-controlling steps, thus ensuring that the desired reactions are the ones favoured.
