Reaction mechanism and reaction order • Chemical reaction: single or sum of many steps =>reaction mechanism • A step: (elementary reaction) – one, two or three reacting molecules => molecularity – unimolecular: isomerization, decomposition – bimolecular: energy transfer, combination – termolecular: energy transfer + combination • Reaction order vs. molecularity – Reaction takes place in an elementary reaction • unimolecular: first order • bimolecular: second order • termolecular: third order – Is a first order reaction is always an unimolecular reaction? Consecutive reaction processes • RX + H2O = ROH + H+ + X- – Unaffected by the PH of solution, SN1 reaction – RX R+ + X- – R+ + H2O ROH + H+ • RX + OH- = ROH + X- – Alkaline solution – RX R+ + X- – R+ + OH- ROH • What happen for 2nd order reaction? Consecutive reaction processes • A B <k1>, B C <k2> – -d[A]/dt = k1 [A]; -d(a-x)/dt = k1 (a-x) – d[B]/dt = k1(a-x) - k2[B] = k1 a e-k1t - k2[B] – d[B]/dt + k2[B] = k1 a e-k1t [ B] ak1 k 2 k1 e k1t e k2t , k1 k 2 , [ B] 0..t 0 Plot of concentrations of A, B, C in consecutive process Consecuti 1 0.8 0.6 [A] 1/a [B] 0.4 [C] 0.2 0 0 20 40 60 time Maximum [B] d [ B] dt ak1 k 2 k1 k 2 e k2t k1e k1t 0 1 k1 tm ln k1 k 2 k 2 Formation of an intermediate complex • A + B X (1) X A + B(2) X C + D(3) • Principles of Stationary state – 1913 Chapman: the net rate of formation of a reaction intermediate may be put equal to zero. – X so reactive, [X] is low d[ X ] k1[ A][ B ] k 1[ X ] k 2 [ X ] 0 dt k k [ A][ B ] d [C ] / dt k 2 [ X ] 1 2 k 1 k 2 Formation of an intermediate complex • A + B X .. k1; X A + B … k-1 • X + C P + Q … k2 d[ X ] k1[ A][ B ] k 1[ X ] k 2 [ X ][C ] dt d [ P] k k [ A][ B ][C ] k 2 [ X ][C ] 1 2 dt k 1 k 2 [C ] Two limiting cases: k-1 > k2[C], k-1 < k2[C], Third body effect in atomic recombination • Two atoms molecule + lot of vibrational energy – short life time production: needs a collision with other molecular species to shed some excessive energy • X + X + M X2 + M – before first vibration (10-13 s) effective collision – effective molecule=highly negative activation energy • higher temperature: lower reaction rate – efficiency is different depend on molecule • large molecule Porter’s interpretation(1961) • I + M = I.M (K1); I.M + I I2 + M(k2) – I.M: spectroscopically identified for benzene – [I.M]=K1[I][M] – d[I2]/dt = k2[I][I.M] = K1k2[I]2[M] • RT ln K = -G = -(H-TS) • k = A exp[-Ea/RT] d ln K1k 2 d ln K1 d ln k 2 Ea R R R d (1 / T ) d (1 / T ) d (1 / T ) H1 E2 Parallel reaction • AB (1) AC (2) – -d[A]/dt = (k1 + k2)[A] – (a-x)=a exp[-(k1+k2)t] – k1/k2 = Yield of B/Yield of C B • AC (1), A+BD (2) – -d[A]/dt = (k1 + k2[B])[A] A • AB (1), A+AC (2) C Reactant participating in equilibria • H2 + I2 = 2HI – Bodenstein 1899 – first order with respect to each reactants – Bimolecular process, elementary reaction, four center transition state – Sullivan 1967: 0-200C ; non elementary reaction – I2 + h I2*, I2* 2 I 2 I + H2 2 HI A probable mechanism for H2 + I2 • I2 = I + I … (1) • I + I+ H2 HI + HI … (2) • K1 = [I]2/[I2] [I]=K11/2[I2]1/2 • d[HI]/dt = 2k2[H2][I]2 = 2k2K1[H2][I2] – Ea(k2) = 21 kJ/mole – Ea(k2) + Bond dissociation energy of I2 == Overall activation energy of Bodenstein thermal experiment.
