Study of Rate of Nonequilibrium Decomposition of Energetic Molecules ( Book )
2 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the initiation of an explosion and subsequent reaction, molecules can acquire energy by a variety of mechanisms. The manner in which these molecules assimilate this energy will determine their subsequent behavior. A study on energy redistribution within a molecule is initiated in the present report. Different cases in which a statistical or a dynamical theory is preferable for treating the rate of decomposition of molecules caused by chemical or thermal activation are described. Experimental evidence is considered from this point of view. Current studies on the dynamical treatment of classical, quantum and semiclassical methods are summarized. (Modified author abstract)
Theories of Electrode Kinetics ( Book )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The present lecture consists of two parts. In the first, a comparison is made of theory and experiment for simple electron transfer reactions in solution and at electrodes, reactions for which no bonds are broken of formed. The main part of the lecture is concerned with electrode reactions involving the breaking and forming of chemical bonds and principally with the hydronium ion discharge reaction, H3O(+) + M(e) yields H2O + H-M(ads.). The treatment of this reaction has been the subject of some controversy (cf. 1965 Faraday Discussions on Proton Transfer and more recent literature). To provide further insight, a more dynamical theory of this elementary step for general potential energy surfaces is described. It is then shown how, depending on the nature of the potential energy surface, the theory leads to various approaches in the literature. For example, depending on the surface, the system may or may not for dynamical reasons be able to reach sufficiently easily the saddle-point region or, again, Franck-Condon solvation effects may or may not contribute to the rate. There is a clear need for the application of recent theorectical methods of electronic structure to determine the essential features of the potential energy surface

A Simple DWBA ('Franck-Condon') Treatment of H-Atom Transfers between Two Heavy Particles ( Book )
1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A simple DWBA (Franck-Condon) method for calculating the probability of transferring a light particle between two heavy ones in a collinear collision at energies below and around the reaction threshold is presented. The region is the important one for the thermal reaction rates. The method is tested for two different model LEPS surfaces for H-atom transfer with moderately high barriers. The results are in good agreement with those of accurate multi-channel calculations. The transition probability is calculated as an overlap integral over the reactants' and products' wavefunctions and the interaction potential. The reactants' and products' wavefunctions are calculated from their respective distortion potentials as one-term adiabatically separable approximations. Both the distortion potentials and the interaction potentials are extracted straightforwardly from the LEPS surface. The novel feature of the approach is that for the first time accurate results for the absolute values of the reaction probability are obtained from a simple overlap of single-channel approximate wavefunctions obtained directly from the respective parts of the potential energy surface for the reaction

Energy Distributions in Molecules ( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The paper describes results on modes of anharmonically coupled oscillators in a molecule, the role of energy exchange and near-degeneracy, and quasi-periodic versus ergodic theory of unimolecular reactions. The quasi-periodic one is a formal generalization of Slater's harmonic oscillator theory. Spectral decomposition of a classical trajectory for the molecule provides insight into the molecular spectrum, both in the low (quasi-periodic) and high (ergodic) energy regimes. The role of quantization of transition states in unimolecular reactions and a relation to vibrational adiabaticity are analyzed. Results obtained on energy distribution of translational energy of molecular beam reactions involving intermediate complexes and tight exit channel transition states are described together with the relation to intramolecular energy randomization

Similarities and Differences Between Electron and Proton Transfers at Electrodes and in Solution ( Book )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Depending on the initial energies, a proton transfer may proceed either via a saddle-point in a potential energy surface or by crossing from the reactants' to the products' valley before the saddle-point is reached. In the second path the analogy to weak-overlap electron transfers is pointed out. The present study is intended to unify previously divergent viewpoints, by showing how they are special cases of a more general picture. Expressions are obtained for the reaction rate in terms of the properties of the potential energy surface and of other properties of the system, using a hydrogen overvoltage reaction as an example.

Theory and Applications of Electron Transfers at Electrodes and in Solution ( Book )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The theory of simple electron transfers at electrodes and in solution is reviewed, and various thermal fluctuations of coordinates leading to electron transfer are described. A simplified derivation is given of the free energy of such fluctuations. Implications of the theoretical equations for experiment are described. They include relations between rate constants of cross-reactions and self-exchange reactions, between rates of reactions at electrodes and those in solution, nonspecific solvent effects, chemiluminescence, and other properties. Approximate equations of the BEBO type are also given for Tafel slopes, Bronsted slopes and rates of cross-reactions, for systems involving rupture and formation of bonds
