How are first-order reactions carried out?

Examples of reaction kinetics

Physical Chemistry in Analytics pp 14-28 | Cite as


Reaction kinetics deals with the laws governing the course of chemical reactions over time. The prerequisite for a chemical reaction to take place at all is chemical affinity, but this in no way determines the speed at which the reaction takes place. Before the dependencies of the reaction speed can be described, it is necessary to define this variable first, e.g. B. on the basis of an exemplary chemical reaction:
