Determining chemical kinetics is the basis for reactor design, the determining of activated energy, energy efficiency, steam production, and integrating the reactor’s outlet stream with the inlet. The purpose of this article is to describe a sensitivity method for concentration and activated energy determination. This sensitivity method defines the sensitivity parameter for determining the characteristics of a reaction using strong electrolytes (for example sodium hydroxide - NaOH) as reactants. The sensitivity parameter is constant throughout this specific reaction. Concentrations of strong electrolytes can be determined by the sensitivity method, which is based on the measurement of conductivities. This method proposes continuous concentration determination of NaOH (or strong electrolyte) as a reactant or product. This sensitivity method was tested using titration.
