Individuality of microparticles (e.g., of ions or atoms) interacting with their environments (e.g., with the solvent molecules) is an open question of both physical and chemical kinetic theories. A qualitative proposal of Primas, and its later elaboration due to Amann, offers a background in this regard. Actually, they suggest that suppression of quantum entanglement provides a basis for the solution of the problem. Here, we show that the model of the so-called DISD (“decoherence-induced suppression of decoherence”) method naturally and straightforwardly fits the basic assumptions of Amann's proposal and, therefore, might represent the missing link to the complete solution of the problem at hand.
