This note is to inform those interested in the availability of a new release of
my reaction kinetics software. The program is available in compiled form for the
Macintosh, DOS, and OS/2 platforms. I compiled and tested it on a Mac PPC using
system 7.5; the DOS and OS/2 compiles are courtesy of George McBane (OSU).
Look for React 3.21 in the archives.

A brief reminder. This program takes reaction mechanisms in the form:
Mechanism from Edelson, J Chem Ed 52, 642 (1975)
5e-8 O2- + Cs+ --> Cs + O2
1e-12 Cs+ + e- --> Cs
3.24e-3 Cs --> Cs+ + e-
.4 O2- --> O2 + e-
this is a comment
1.76e-16 O2 + Cs --> CsO2
1.24e-30 O2 + O2 + e- --> O2 + O2-
1.4e-16 O2 + e- --> O2-
builds the differential equation set and finds a numerical solution. It borrows
heavily from programs available from firstname.lastname@example.org
As a bonus specific reactions can be flagged to have their rate constants
adjusted using a least-squares criterion and experimental measurements of
Sample files and a brief manual are included. Plain text (ascii), and MS Word
No promises, warranties not even decent error messages so use at your own risk.
If you use it in published research cite the program please.
Copy and share freely but don't sell, remarket or charge for the program!
