Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The new procedure suggested in Part I for the construction of a complex chemical reaction network is applied to two different and complex reaction systems. In the case of the oxidation of ethylbenzene in the liquid phase the most important network is the carbon skeleton sequence network derived from a possible mechanism of the overall process. In experiments designed for this purpose this carbon skeleton sequence network has been verified and slightly modified. For the high temperature methane oxidation in the gas phase three sequence networks are constructed: the carbon, hydrogen and oxygen sequence networks. The carbon and oxygen sequence networks show characteristics corresponding to evidence obtained experimentally on this reaction although direct proof has not been given so far, in order to establish the formation sequence of the products.
