Abstract

The analysis of pseudo-steady states of a chemical system can be aided by the identification of mechanisms responsible for overall reactions, from a known set of elementary steps that involve overall reactants and products as well as reaction intermediates. In the context of examples of catalytic synthesis of ammonia and methanol, an alternative approach for the construction of mechanisms from steps is presented. The approach is based on successive processing and elimination of reaction intermediates which should not appear in the net stoichiometry of the overall reactions accomplished.
