N2 - The rate of a chemical reaction is expressed in terms of the correlation functions which are found from the full system of hydrodynamic equations in reactive systems. In the limiting cases one obtains all three types of behavior of reaction rates near the critical points found in experiments (slowing-down, speeding-up, insensitivity to criticality). This behavior depends on the number of reactive and inert components in a system, proximity and path of approach to the critical point.
