We show that the entropy method, that has been used successfully in order
to prove exponential convergence towards equilibrium with explicit constants in many contexts,
among which reaction-diffusion systems coming out of reversible chemistry, can also be used
when one considers a reaction-diffusion system corresponding to an irreversible mechanism of
dissociation/recombination, for which no natural entropy is available.
