"...a very good modelling application."

"Kinetic Simulations. The kinetic simulations were performed with the KINTECUS program
written by Dr. James C. Ianni. The virtues of this program are that it runs incredibly fast on a
standard PC and is basically unrestricted in terms of the number of reactions and species.
Further, the program checks for correct mass and charge balance and also offers the opportunity
to modify the concentration of selected compounds at any point of the time scale. This feature
easily allows to model the actual conditions of the experiments, e. g., pH quenching or allowing
oxygen to diffuse in. The reliability of the program algorithm was checked for several different
kinetic schemes by comparison with experimental data from the literature and simulations
performed with the CKS software."

"I am using Kintecus successfully !"

"...it looks like you've accomplished a Herculean task of programming kinetics. Good luck with it. "

Prof. Dr. Bill Gardiner
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
The University of Texas at Austin

I don't read Spanish too well, but considering the Professor E. Besalú at the Institut De Quimica Computacional has used Kintecus in various homework problems (in Spanish) the past four years, that shows something good about Kintecus. See http://iqc.udg.es/~emili/docent/cqdm/cqdm_kintecus.html

Another educational use of Kintecus in a Reactor Systems homework problem from Dr. Lee at the National University of Singapore:


"I have found your software to be very useful and I am trying to convince my faculty advisor of this fact."

The software you have developed is very useful and I would like to congratulate you for that on behalf of all of us in the lab who use it.

Thanking you.

I can guarantee that no kinetic program runs faster than Kintecus ….

Thanks alot for a very transparent and efficient program

…use of the "sensitivity analysis" facility of Kintecus, which we find quite useful,

Dr. Hans-Gert Korth
Universitätsklinikum Essen

Anyway, Kineticus is great. I'm using it for my diploma thesis (ammonia
oxidation/combustion). Transfer of a Chemkin kinetic model (350
reactions) worked great...Kineticus works so fast,
that I already have all the kinetic data I wanted
I'll promote your fabulous software at my university. Good luck with it.

Best regards,
Peter Haselbacher

Thank you very much again for your great help !

Prof. Dr. A. C. Benim
Duesseldorf University of Applied Sciences

Yes, the model is running faster with your suggestions. Thanks a lot for your help….

Anyway, I think kintecus is excellent.

German Cota

Great program! Much easier to use than CKS. The fact that the data is already in Excel greatly speeds up the simulation/analysis/model tweaking cycle.

...I am using it to model anionic copolymerization and it got me through a rough spot that I couldn't initially navigate analytically. I know I am barely scratching the surface of its capabilities, but it has been a lifesaver.

-John Sanchez
Chemical Engineering, UT Austin

" At higher oxygen concentrations, the experimental a values increase noticeably more rapidly, which is nearly adequately taken into account by the calculations for the adiabatic conditions. Indeed, estimates show that, under our experimental conditions, the characteristic heat-transfer time and the reaction time are close and the reaction heating is near-adiabatic.The calculations for the adiabatic conditions virtually accurately described the experimental dependence at all the studied initial oxygen concentrations."

Though I did only scratch the surface of the possibilities of  KINTECUS I may already say that it outperforms any other kinetics code I
have used. It is fast, accurate and most important it is easily used. That is why I   plan to introduce it into teaching students in the coming term.

I have found Kintecus an invaluable tool in work related to the emergence of biochemistry on the early earth.  It readily handles complex reaction series over periods extended to 10(7) to 10(8) years, and the Excel-based format is friendly and convenient.

"I'm very impressed with Kintecus. It's fast, easy to use, deals with very stiff ODE systems, and can handle time-dependent photolysis for atmospheric simulations...unlike most of the other freeware/shareware kinetics codes. Moreover, it has modern advanced features, like sensitivity analysis and a companion tool (Atropos) for systematically reducing huge mechanisms to manageable size. These features place it far ahead of the other codes."
