Cavity ringdown spectroscopy (CRDS) and frequency modulation spectroscopy (FMS) are sensitive absorption based detection methods that have found widespread applications in gas phase reaction kinetics. In part 2 of this review, the theoretical foundations of CRDS are addressed with a special emphasis on quantitative measurements of concentration-time profiles. A complementary review of FMS can be found in part 1 (Z. Phys. Chem. (2007), submitted). Practical aspects, possible pitfalls, attainable sensitivities, and modern trends are discussed. Recent kinetic studies based on CRDS measurements as a time-resolved detection tool are briefly reviewed and a bibliography with 130 entries is included to facilitate the access to the large body of original literature.
