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.

Keywords: selectivity; consecutive reactions; mixed second and first order; heterogeneous catalysts
