    It's certainly not my first choice; I think responsiveness is generally better. (Ha, I wonder if we both recently saw the same example.)

    It's fine for chemicals.

    Edit: on second thought, it works for people too, but not in the usual way the French word does. Reactivity (psychology) - Wikipedia
