Abstract : There are two comparatively new relaxation techniques for measuring nanosecond time scale reaction rates in liquids: the laser Debye-Sears ultrasonic absorption method and the laser Raman temperature jump technique. Advantages and limitations of these techniques are reviewed, and their use in kinetic studies of metal ion complexation and dye dimerization is surveyed. (Author)
