Response reactions: Interpretation and geometric representation

Ištván Nagypál, Ivan Gutman, Eufrozina Hoffmanh, Ilie Fishtik

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The concept of response reactions, elaborated in full detail in a few recently published papers, is interpreted in an alternative way, in order to make its chemical meaning easier to understand, and to visualize its most important features. The reaction extents in multiple-equilibrium systems are then interpreted in terms of response reactions. A geometric representation of the response reactions in three-component multiple-equilibrium systems is presented and a few illusrative examples provided.
