Description of a computational technique for determining chemical reaction rate constants, based on measurements of observable kinetic data. Problems are viewed as nonlinear multi-point boundary value problems for systems of nonlinear ordinary differential equations, for which the quasilinearization procedure offers an effective means of numerical solution. The method is illustrated using kinetic data on some gas phase reactions of nitrogen and oxygen. 16 pp.
