Competing reactions with initially separated components in the asymptotic time region Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Two competing irreversible reactions with initially separated components and with essentially different reaction constants are theoretically studied in the asymptotic time region. The description of the two simultaneous reactions is reduced to the consideration of two reactions separated in space. It is shown that the reaction rate profile can have two maxima and their ratio is independent of time. The location and relative value of the maxima are functions of the reaction constants and initial concentrations.
