    Mixtures of species may be analyzed by a method where differing rates of reaction with a common reagent serve to differentiate components. The rate constants are usefully regarded as the reciprocals of frequencies and the method may be called “kinetic spectrometry.” Literature on the stopped flow technique reports analyses of mixtures of metal ions and of mixtures of amino-polycarboxylates using convenient instrumentation. The prospects for automated direct analyses of metal complex species present in natural waters are discussed.
