Cooke (biochemistry, U, of Oklahoma) and Cleland (biochemistry, U, of Wisconsin) introduce readers to kinetics and nomenclature, then cover enzyme assays, derivations of initial velocity rate equations and data processing, initial velocity studies in the absence or presence of added inhibitors, pre-steady-state and relaxation kinetics, isotopic probes of kinetic mechanisms, isotropic effects as a probe of mechanisms, and pH dependence of kinetic parameters and isotope effects.

Most materials possess kinetic mechanisms by which stress is reduced, so the goal of an isothermal test is to observe stress relaxation at a high enough temperature for the effect to occur in a reasonable time.

Different hardeners or catalysts can be used to enable individual epoxy resins to exhibit various kinetic mechanisms (such as the n-th order and autocatalytic kinetic mechanisms, among others).
