Kinetics is the study of rates of chemical reactions. Kinetics allows the chemists to predict how the speed of a reaction will change under a reaction conditions. The study of kinetics is very important because it can elucidate the information about the mechanism of a reaction and can also allow chemists to be more efficient in the laboratory. At higher concentrations a reaction will proceed more quickly. In a step wise reaction, the rate determining step (RDS) is the step with the highest energy transition state, also known as slow step.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
