Numerical modeling of complex chemical reaction networks is an essential component of many environmental applications. In most cases the detailed network must be condensed (reduced), e.g., due to computational expense or practical considerations. We will discuss a state of the art approach for dynamic model updating and reduction, applied to the gas phase isoprene oxidation mechanism as an example.
