This introduction opens by discussing the distinction between kinetic and thermodynamic determinations. After defining equilibrium, pseudo-equilibrium, and dynamic measurements, a historical perspective is given that covers early tests and publications to the present overall scope of kinetic determinations. In closing, a listing of selected bibliography is presented; this follows a short narrative emphasizing that kinetics goes beyond determinations in analytical chemistry.
