The mechanistic paradigm has failed the reality test in life.
The kinetics of chemical change, including catalysis; the mechanistic interpretation of chemical reactions.
As such, it is not causal in the mechanistic sense; nonetheless, it exhibits a kind of causality.
Structural analysis also underpins the major research effort in the MIB on mechanistic enzymology.
This PhD project aims to develop mechanistic models for the prediction of irradiated behavior in nuclear graphite.
