How reaction kinetics with time-dependent rate coefficients differs from generalized mass action

Abstract

Take caution! The two distinct theoretical descriptions of non‐classical kinetics: fractal‐like kinetics (kinetics with time‐dependent rate coefficients) and the power law approximation (generalized mass action kinetics) are shown to be equivalent only for simple reactions of the type A+A→ø or A+B→ø with equal initial concentrations of A and B. In all other cases they are not the same.
