Effect of concentration on the rate of chemical reactions

C. A. Warda)

Laboratoire d'Electrochimie Interfaciale du C.N.R.S., 92195 Meudon Principal Cedex, France

(Received 24 May 1983; accepted 16 August 1983)

A method that has recently been used to examine the rate of molecular transport across a phase

boundary-statistical rate theory- is extended to obtain the expression for the rate of a single step chemical

reaction. The concentration dependence of the newly derived rate expression leads to the prediction of a

higher reaction rate in the period immediately after the reaction has begun than any of the previous theories

and gives a different physical interpretation of the "rate constant". When ions are reacting in solution under

near-equilibrium conditions, the concentration dependence of the newly derived rate expression reduces to the

conventional expression; further under these conditions, the new fate expression leaps to an expression for the

conventional rate constant that is equivalent to the Brtlnsted primary salt effect for the change in the rate

constant with ionic strength. To eltamine the predicted behavior in the initial period, the predictions are

compared with the measurements of ion concentration during electron exchange reactions. When these

experiments were originally conducted, using radioactive labeling techniques, substantial disagreement was

found between the conventional theory and the measurements. To bring them together the concept of "zero-

time exchange" was introduced which amounts to adding a constant to the predictions of the conventional

theory. The physical basis for this concept has remained undefined. When the statistical rate theory

expression is compared with the data from six experiments available in the literature, it is found for five of the

six that there is no measurable disagreement between the data and the theory and only small disagreement for

the other case. From the point of view of statistical rate theory it is unnecessary to introduce the concept of

zero-time exchange.
