Reversible Consecutive First-Order Reactions Model

What is this model?

This model represents a two-stage reversible reaction. Many organic processes operate in which the reaction can both transform reactants to products, and products back to reactants. In such a scenario, rather than going to completion the reaction will reach equilibrium. There are three stages in the reaction, represented by groups A, B, and C. As time goes by, A transforms to B, and B to C, and upon equilibrium the reverse can also occur.

What can this Model be used to teach?

  • Understand the concept of reversible reactions, equilibrium, and Le Chatelier's principle
  • Understand the main elements on the chemical reaction model
