Abstract

new error-compensating algorithm for kinetic determinations of dual-component mixtures without prior knowledge of reaction orders and rate constants Is developed and evaluated. The algorithm Is primarily evaluated for the quantification of the chemical components, but Its ability to determine reaction orders and rate constants Is demonstrated as well. The method Is applicable for determination of concentrations, rate constants, and reaction orders In a wide range, but there are several limitations and restrictions that are pointed out. The algorithm falls for reaction order of exactly unity; however, an extension to Include this singular point Is described. Simulated data with Gaussian noise are used to evaluate the effects of the various parameters Involved In this problem.
