What is it?
- One of the most frequently used rapid kinetics techniques.
- Used to study fast kinetics reactions (in the millisecond timescale) between two mixed reactants.
- Many applications in the chemistry and biochemistry fields.
- Quenching studies
- Energy transfers
- Enzymes kinetics
How does it work?
- Under pneumatic drive activation, the two small volumes of solutions are driven from high performance syringes through a high efficiency mixer.
- The resultant mixture passes through a measurement flow cell and into a stopping syringe.
- Just prior to stopping, a steady state flow is achieved.
- As the solution fills the stopping syringe, the plunger hits a block, causing the flow to be stopped instantaneously.
- Using appropriate techniques, the kinetics of the reaction can be measured in the cell.
