Abstract : This project was devoted to a study of the kinetics of diffusion- controlled and surface catalytic reactions. For catalytic reactions, the kinetics of the saturation process was elucidated. The role of interactions between adsorbates on the surface reaction was examined. For diffusion- controlled reaction, a comprehensive theoretical framework to describe the spatial organization of reactants was developed. Particular attention was devoted to understanding the reaction dynamics at an interface which separates two reactive species. Geometrical features of this interface and the time dependence of the reaction rate were determined.... Chemical kinetics; Catalysis; Diffusion-controlled reactions.
