‡ Studies the rate at which a chemical process occurs. ‡ Besides information about the speed at which reactions occur, kinetics also sheds light on the reaction mechanism (exactly how the reaction occurs).

How we measure rates. How the rate depends on amounts of reactants. How to calc amount left or time to reach a given amount. How long it takes to react 50% of reactants. How rate constant changes with T. Link between rate and molecular Chemical scale processes.

Factors That Affect Reaction Rates
‡ Concentration of Reactants 
As the concentration of reactants increases, so does the likelihood that reactant molecules will collide.

‡ Temperature 
At higher temperatures, reactant molecules have more kinetic energy, move faster, and collide more often and with greater energy.

‡ Catalysts 
Speed rxn by changing mechanism.

([A] vs (t Kinetics .Reaction Rates Rxn Movie Rates of reactions can be determined by monitoring the change in concentration of either reactants or products as a function of Chemical time.

The factors mentioned will affect the composition of the reaction mixture at any given time. aA + bB c + dD Chemical Kinetics . denoted by R. Therefore The change in composition of the reaction mixture with time is the rate of reaction. R is the same whether monitoring reactants or products Generally. r or Y.

a reaction cannot occur unless the molecules possess sufficient energy to get over the activation energy barrier. ‡ Just as a ball cannot get over a hill if it does not roll up the hill with enough energy.Activation Energy ‡ In other words. there is a minimum amount of energy required for reaction: the activation energy. Ea. Chemical Kinetics .

so does the reaction rate.Temperature and Rate ‡ Generally. Chemical Kinetics . as temperature increases. ‡ This is because k is temperature dependent.

Chemical Kinetics .Maxwell-Boltzman Distribution ‡ At higher temperatures. ‡ This increases the reaction rate. more molecules will have adequate energy to react.

The Collision Model ‡ In a chemical reaction. bonds are broken and new bonds are formed. Chemical Kinetics . ‡ Molecules can only react if they collide with each other.

The Collision Model Furthermore. Chemical Kinetics . molecules must collide with the correct orientation and with enough energy to cause bond breakage and formation.

Chemical Kinetics .Reaction Mechanisms The sequence of events that describes the actual process by which reactants become products is called the reaction mechanism.

Chemical Kinetics .Reaction Mechanisms ‡ Reactions may occur all at once or through several discrete steps. ‡ Each of these processes is known as an elementary reaction or elementary process.

The rate law for an elementary step is written directly from that step. Chemical Kinetics .Reaction Mechanisms ‡ ‡ The molecularity of a process tells how many molecules are involved in the process.

rate-determining step. ‡ The overall reaction cannot occur faster than this slowest.Multistep Mechanisms ‡ In a multistep process. Chemical Kinetics . one of the steps will be slower than all others.

but the rate of the reaction does not depend on its concentration. ‡ This suggests the reaction occurs in two steps.Slow Initial Step NO2 (g) + CO (g) €€p NO (g) + CO2 (g) ‡ The rate law for this reaction is found experimentally to be Rate = k [NO2]2 ‡ CO is necessary for this reaction to occur. Chemical Kinetics .

it does not appear in the rate law. Chemical Kinetics . ‡ As CO is not involved in the slow. rate-determining step.Slow Initial Step ‡ A proposed mechanism for this reaction is Step 1: NO2 + NO2 €€p NO3 + NO (slow) Step 2: NO3 + CO €€p NO2 + CO2 (fast) ‡ The NO3 intermediate is consumed in the second step.

Chemical Kinetics .Fast Initial Step ‡ The rate law for this reaction is found (experimentally) to be ‡ Because termolecular (= trimolecular) processes are rare. this rate law suggests a two-step mechanism.

Fast Initial Step ‡ A proposed mechanism is Step 1 is an equilibriumit includes the forward and reverse reactions. Chemical Kinetics .

‡ The rate law for that step would be ‡ But how can we find [NOBr2]? Chemical Kinetics .Fast Initial Step ‡ The rate of the overall reaction depends upon the rate of the slow step.

Fast Initial Step ‡ NOBr2 can react two ways: With NO to form NOBr By decomposition to reform NO and Br2 ‡ The reactants and products of the first step are in equilibrium with each other. ‡ Therefore. Chemical Ratef = Rater Kinetics .

Fast Initial Step ‡ Because Ratef = Rater . k1 [NO] [Br2] = kí1 [NOBr2] Solving for [NOBr2] gives us k1 [NO] [Br2] = [NOBr2] kí1 Chemical Kinetics .

Fast Initial Step Substituting this expression for [NOBr2] in the rate law for the rate-determining step gives Chemical Kinetics .
