## Usage

### In literature:

Similarly he represented the reactions investigated by Liebig and Wohler on benzoyl compounds as double decompositions.

### In news:

"What seems to have happened is that there was a chemical reaction between the decomposition products on the body and the carbohydrate deposits on the cloth," said de Wesselow.

### In science:

Their formation and decomposition are first order phase transitions, not chemical reactions; they are not chemical compounds as the trapped molecules are not bonded to the lattice.
A CF3I-based SDD Prototype for Spin-independent Dark Matter Searches
In the non-conservative sector of the EOB model, the radiation-reaction force in the EOB equations of motion is built from the GW energy ﬂux, which, in turn, is computed from a decomposition of the waveform into spherical harmonic (ℓ, m) modes.

With the nomenclature straightened out, and neglecting the plasma back-reaction on spacetime, one may readily write down the decomposition of the ﬁeld equations.

Here we use their nominal mechanism which consists of 102 neutral species composed of C, H, O, and N (He is just a non reactive collider in some reactions) linked by 1882 chemical reactions of three main types: bimolecular disproportionation, three-body association, and thermal decomposition.
