Follow-up reaction

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In chemistry and physics , subsequent reaction describes the continuation of a reaction if the products of the original reaction are still reactive.

A output → B intermediate situation (...) → Z final state

The extent to which the individual reactions can actually be distinguished from one another depends on the time in which they take place. If these reactions can run in both directions, a steady state occurs , which is particularly common in nature, where many complex reaction mechanisms interact.

If the starting products are created in a reaction or subsequent reaction, the reactions can be continually repeated, known as chain reactions .
