reaction kinetics

The branch of physical chemistry that deals with the determination of the rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions.

The measurement of the rate coefficients for a large number of gas-phase chemical reactions has improved our ability to model the impact of human activities on the atmosphere. For description of some of the techniques used,
see flash photolysis systems, laser-induced fluorescence, resonance fluorescence.
