I was investigating if Kintecus is an useful application to support our company in burner emission levels forecast. It is, fortunately.

"I am using Kintecus successfully !"
Prof. Dr. Lynn Melton
"...it looks like you've accomplished a Herculean task of programming kinetics. Good luck with it. "
I don't read Spanish too well, but considering the Professor E. Besalú at the Institut De Quimica Computacional has used Kintecus in various homework problems (in Spanish) the past four years, that shows something good about Kintecus. See http://iqc.udg.es/~emili/docent/cqdm/cqdm_kintecus.html
Another educational use of Kintecus in a Reactor Systems homework problem from Dr. Lee at the National University of Singapore:
"I have found your software to be very useful and I am trying to convince my faculty advisor of this fact."
William E. Wyllie II
The software you have developed is very useful and I would like to congratulate you for that on behalf of all of us in the lab who use it.
Dr. Harish M. Pursnani
"Experimental data were fitted with the help of the Kintecus software...."

I can guarantee that no kinetic program runs faster than Kintecus .
Prof. Dr. Michael Kirsch
Thanks alot for a very transparent and efficient program
Prof. Dr. Edvard Sundby
use of the "sensitivity analysis" facility of Kintecus, which we find quite useful,
Dr. Hans-Gert Korth
Anyway, Kineticus is great. I'm using it for my diploma thesis
Thank you very much again for your great help !
Prof. Dr. A. C. Benim
Yes, the model is running faster with your suggestions. Thanks a lot for your help .
Anyway, I think kintecus is excellent.
Great program! Much easier to use than CKS. The fact that the data is already in Excel greatly speeds up the simulation/analysis/model tweaking cycle.
...I am using it to model anionic copolymerization and it got me through a rough spot that I couldn't initially navigate analytically. I know I am barely scratching the surface of its capabilities, but it has been a lifesaver.
" At higher oxygen concentrations, the experimental a values increase noticeably more rapidly, which is nearly adequately taken into account by the calculations for the adiabatic conditions. Indeed, estimates show that, under our experimental conditions, the characteristic heat-transfer time and the reaction time are close and the reaction heating is near-adiabatic.The calculations for the adiabatic conditions virtually accurately described the experimental dependence at all the studied initial oxygen concentrations."

E. V. Sheverdenkin**
Though I did only scratch the surface of the possibilities
of KINTECUS I may already say that it outperforms any other kinetics code I
I have found Kintecus an invaluable tool in work related
to the emergence of biochemistry on the early earth. It readily handles complex
reaction series over periods extended to 10(7) to 10(8) years, and the Excel-based format
is friendly and convenient.
"I'm very impressed with Kintecus. It's fast, easy to use, deals with very stiff ODE systems, and can handle time-dependent photolysis for atmospheric simulations...unlike most of the other freeware/shareware kinetics codes. Moreover, it has modern advanced features, like sensitivity analysis and a companion tool (Atropos) for systematically reducing huge mechanisms to manageable size. These features place it far ahead of the other codes."
Prof. Dr. John R.
