RRKM theory

+ Save concept

The Rice–Ramsperger–Kassel–Marcus (RRKM) theory is a theory of chemical reactivity. [1]

8 relations: Harmonic oscillator, Henry Eyring (chemist), Potential energy surface, Reaction coordinate, Reaction rate, Reactivity (chemistry), Rudolph A. Marcus, Transition state theory.

Harmonic oscillator

In classical mechanics, a harmonic oscillator is a system that, when displaced from its equilibrium position, experiences a restoring force, F, proportional to the displacement, x: where k is a positive constant.

Henry Eyring (chemist)

Henry Eyring (February 20, 1901 – December 26, 1981) was a Mexican-born American theoretical chemist whose primary contribution was in the study of chemical reaction rates and intermediates.

Potential energy surface

A potential energy surface (PES) describes the energy of a system, especially a collection of atoms, in terms of certain parameters, normally the positions of the atoms.

Reaction coordinate

In chemistry, a reaction coordinate is an abstract one-dimensional coordinate which represents progress along a reaction pathway.

Reaction rate

The reaction rate or rate of reaction is the speed at which reactants are converted into products.

Reactivity (chemistry)

In chemistry, reactivity is the impetus for which a chemical substance undergoes a chemical reaction, either by itself or with other materials, with an overall release of energy.

Rudolph A. Marcus

Rudolph Arthur Marcus (born July 21, 1923) is a Canadian-born chemist who received the 1992 Nobel Prize in Chemistry "for his contributions to the theory of electron transfer reactions in chemical systems".
