Kinetics of chemical reactions

Abstract:

The temperature dependence of most chemical reactions is accurately represented by the Arrhenius equation,

k = Ae-E/RT

where k is the rate constant, A is a temperature independent entropy factor, often called the frequency factor, and K is the activation energy. This equation provides a useful method for the expression of results in a kinetic investigation.

It is found that when changes in rate are brought about through moderate variations of react ant struc...
