Abstract : A new method of investigation, based on the use of rapidly responding pCO2 electrodes, was found suitable for the study of the kinetics of carbamino reaction, the extent of CO2 combination being obtained in 5 msec after the beginning of the reaction. The method is adequate for a full kinetic analysis of this rapid reaction. The method has been applied to the study of the reaction between CO2 and amino groups of haemoglobin molecule. (Author)
