  1. I never knew it had a name but I would guess stepwise.

  2. It does have a name, and according to my online test, stepwise was wrong. It is a consecutive reaction. Thanks again for your help

  3. Before your answer, but after I had posted, I looked it up on Google. Here is the site.

    It's confusing, to say the least.

  4. I take it that a two-step or three-step reaction is called consecutive, unless the second part (or the third pat) of the reaction is an intermediate, in which it is stepwise. Does that make sense? For example,
    A==>B*intermediate==>C is stepwise
    A==> B ==> C is consecutive.
