Mapping the kinetic events in a linear two-step irreversible-reversible reaction mechanism
Kinetic events (intersections, maxima and coincidences) are mapped in the batch reactor (BR) and the continuously stirred-tank reactor (CSTR). The mechanism A -> B reversible arrow C was used as an example. A two-stage study was performed: the analysis of single kinetic events, and the ordering by pairs (coincidences) of these events. As a result, all maps of kinetic events were constructed in barycentric parametric coordinates of kinetic constants. A series of analytical expressions between kinetic coefficients and time characteristics of the events were found, in particular a relationship between the intersection times and the kinetic coefficients.
