The decrease in @[email protected] brought about by the addition of a substance @[email protected]), by virtue of its effect on the concentration of a reactant, @[email protected] or @[email protected] For example, molecular oxygen and p-benzoquinone can react as 'inhibitors' in many reactions involving @[email protected] as intermediates by virtue of their ability to act as @[email protected] toward these radicals. If the rate of a reaction in the absence of @[email protected] is \(v_{0}\) and that in the presence of a certain amount of @I030[email protected] is \(v\), the degree of inhibition (\(i\)) is given by: \[i=\frac{v_{0}- v}{v_{0}}\]
