We are concerned with polynomial ordinary differential systems that arise from modelling chemical reaction networks. For such systems, which may be of high dimension and may depend on many parameters, it is frequently of interest to obtain a reduction of dimension in certain parameter ranges. Singular perturbation theory, as initiated by Tikhonov and Fenichel, provides a path towards such reductions. In the present paper, we discuss parameter values that lead to singular perturbation reductions (so-called Tikhonov–Fenichel parameter values, or TFPVs). An algorithmic approach is known, but it is feasible for small dimensions only. Here, we characterize conditions for classes of reaction networks for which TFPVs arise by turning off reactions (by setting rate parameters to zero) or by removing certain species (which relates to the classical quasi-steady state approach to model reduction). In particular, we obtain definitive results for the class of complex-balanced reaction networks (of deficiency zero) and first-order reaction networks.
