CHEM 452

Reaction Mechanisms and Dynamics

Units: 1.5

Hours: 3-0

Formerly: 352

Predicting the kinetic behaviour of different types of mechanisms. Deduction of mechanisms and interpretation of activation parameters from experimental data. Predicting and controlling rate by varying solvents, substituents, catalysts, etc. Use of a wide range of examples from inorganic and organic chemistry to illustrate these ideas.
