            In a
complex kinetic system with many components, the phase-portrait is the global
qualitative description of the totality of the reaction paths of the system.  It can be used to analyze and to optimize
selectivity and product values.  The
angle of the slow eigenvector and the direction for the convergence of reaction
paths are dominant for the best operational and research strategies.
