WARNING: This procedure is effective even when reactions are not known a priori (reactants & products that participate in the reaction).
This m-file presents a method for identifying and balancing any number of chemical reactions. The procedure is based on the singular-value-decomposition of the formula matrix for the reaction mixture. The method is effective even when the reactions are not known a priori.

(varargin) = (s1 = species 1(cell array),s2 = species 2(cell array)
...sN = species N(cell array)
The species is the 'formula'. eg. 'CH4' .

A table of the balancing coefficients. The sign minus or plus indicates in what side of the reaction they are.
