Reuel Shinnar was an early pioneer in the theory of reactor behavior. Reuel and others laid the foundations for a body of theory, largely driven by practical chemical engineering problems, that now permits one to make penetrating and far-from-obvious statements about highly complex chemical systems in a precise way. This talk will describe some  of what is  known about the behavior of intricate chemical reaction networks more than a half century after Reuel began his career.
