1 Chemical Kinetics Chapter 15 An automotive catalytic muffler. 2 Chemical Kinetics Chapter 15 • We can use thermodynamics to tell if a reaction is product or reactant favored. • But this gives us no info on HOW FAST reaction goes from reactants to products. • KINETICS — the study of REACTION RATES and their relation to the way the reaction proceeds, i.e., its MECHANISM. 3 Thermodynamics or Kinetics • Reactions can be one of the following: 1. Not thermodynamically favored (reactant favored) 2. Thermodynamically favored (product favored), but not kinetically favored (slow) 3. Thermodynamically favored (product favored) and kinetically favored (fast) 4 Thermodynamics or Kinetics • Not thermodynamically favored (reactant favored) • Sand (SiO2) will not decompose into Si and O2 5 Thermodynamics or Kinetics • Thermodynamically favored (product favored), but not kinetically favored (slow) • Diamonds will turn into graphite, but the reaction occurs very slowly 6 Thermodynamics or Kinetics • Thermodynamic ally favored (product favored) and kinetically favored (fast) • Burning of paper in air will turn to ash very quickly 7 Reaction Mechanisms The sequence of events at the molecular level that control the speed and outcome of a reaction.

Half-Life 50 Section 15.4 and Screen 15.8 Start with 1.50 mg of tritium, how much is left after 49.2 years? t1/2 = 12.3 years Solution [A] / [A]0 = 0.0627 0.0627 is the fraction remaining! Because [A]0 = 1.50 mg, [A] = 0.094 mg But notice that 49.2 y = 4.00 half-lives 1.50 mg ---> 0.750 mg after 1 ---> 0.375 mg after 2 ---> 0.188 mg after 3 ---> 0.094 mg after 4 51 Half-Lives of Radioactive Elements Rate of decay of radioactive isotopes given in terms of 1/2-life. 238U --> 234Th + He 4.5 x 109 y 14C --> 14N + beta 5730 y 131I --> 131Xe + beta 8.05 d Element 106 - seaborgium 263Sg 0.9 s
