Reactant and Product vs Time Why Study Chemical Kinetics? Learn how to control and optimize reactions Predict the yield and outcome of a reaction Deduce the molecular mechanism a reaction (i.e. how many steps) What is Chemical Kinetics? Kinetics investigates the rate of chemical reactions and how rate depends on temperature, concentration and catalysts.
