Selectivity Analysis for Networks Comprising Consecutive Reactions of Second and First Order

  • Dmitry Yu. Murzin EMAIL logo , Irina L. Simakova and Johan Wärnå


Coupling of second and first order reactions in one pot fashion through a cascade process is an often encountered process. Consecutive reactions of this type are considered and selectivity analysis is performed demonstrating dependence of selectivity pattern on reaction parameters.
