Chemical kinetics and transition state theory

Por: Swayam . en: , ,


This course will cover calculating rate constants using two basic models: collision theory and transition state theory (TST). TST will particularly be discussed in detail with solving multiple examples and discussion of limitations and extensions. The course assumes knowledge of basic statistical mechanics, particularly Boltzmann distribution and partition functions. These concepts will be briefly revised, but not derived in detail. Knowledge of basic rate theory will be helpful, although will be covered in the course.
