WebLecture: Reaction Mechanisms
Kotz and Triechel, Chemistry and Chemical Reactivity Chapter 14: Sections 5-6.
- 14.5 For a reaction to occur, the reacting molecules molecules must not only have sufficient kinetic energy of motion (activation energy Ea), they must also collide effectively. The rate of a reaction depends not only on temperature, where heat energy supplies the kinetic energy for the collision, but on the shape of the molecules, and the frequency of effective collisions.
- 14.6 A reaction mechanism may involve multiple reactions between initial reactants and their intermediate products to produce the final products of the overall reaction. The rate of a multiple-step reaction will be constrained to the rate of the slowest reaction step.
