Teaching and Learning Materials on the Quasi-Steady-State Approximation and the Partial-Equilibrium Approximation


Starting from simple examples of chemical schemes for which a concentration or an extent of reaction can be eliminated, we highlight the common features of the quasi-steady-state approximation and the partial-equilibrium approximation. General conditions to apply either of these adiabatic eliminations are mentioned.
