Typical Time Evolutions of Simple Chemical Reactions

  • Wilhelm Brenig


The nonlinearities of chemical rate equations lead to deviations in the time evolutions of chemical reactions, as compared to the linear rate equations with their exponential decay. In this chapter we consider some typical examples of such time evolutions for a single reaction.
