CSIR NET Physical Chemistry Notes – chemical kinetics

Chemical kinetics, also known as reaction kinetics, is the branch of physical chemistry concerned with understanding chemical reaction rates. Chemical kinetics is an important topic for the CSIR NET Chemical science exam – which explains the kinetics of chemical reactions. In physical chemistry, thermodynamics will tell us about spontaneous change, while chemical kinetics gives us insight into the actual pathways of chemical processes, which leads to the formation of stable products from reactants. So it’s necessary to know about chemical kinetics in detail.
