From elementary reactions to complex mechanisms, reaction kinetics is vital to understand and predict the behaviour and development of reactive systems. Progress is being made in experimental techniques to identify reactive intermediates, charge carriers, clusters and nanoscale products even in unusual or hostile environments, in theoretical chemistry to understand the reactivity and the dynamic evolution of the system down to the smallest scales in space and time, and in computer simulation to design and optimize processes and devices or to derive likely scenarios for the future. With this background, the conference’s main topic focuses specifically on the insight and guidance that may be expected from understanding fundamental reaction kinetics to address and solve real-world problems, including all variants of kinetics for industrial applications.
