The quantitative prediction of charges and equilibria of reactions is without doubt one of the most vital and such a lot tricky initiatives of chemistry. This graduate-level textual content stresses extrathermodynamic method of quantitative prediction and constructs a logical framework that encompasses and classifies all recognized extrathermodynamic relationships. First introducing history fabric on thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, the booklet offers response fee conception in the course of the use and interpretation of response coordinate diagrams, then examines the premiums of very speedy reactions, together with the so-called leisure strategies. It comprises a number of figures and tables.

3 The thermodynamic functions for the dimerization of acetic acid have been given in Table 3-3 for the solvent water as well as for the more nearly inert solvent benzene. The enthalpies and entropies for the dimerization in benzene are much more negative than those for the dimerization in water. The reason for this difference is that in water the monomeric acetic acid is hydrogen-bonded to water molecules to a greater extent than is the dimer, and the formation of new hydrogen bonds is therefore accompanied by the rupture of old ones.

This can be appreciated most readily in terms of a rather drastic example: the effect of a dimethylamino group on nitrobenzene in the two solvents benzene and sulfuric acid. =c->=N+ / - 0- / \ CH3 0- dimethylaminonitrobenzenein benzene dimethylaminonitrobenzene in sulfuric acid Hydrogen bonding between a substituent and the solvent can also be expected to modify the effect of a substituent, although to a lesser extent than actual protonation. 6 Interdependence of solvent and substituent effects can also often be interpreted in terms of a less microscopic treatment which makes use of the electrical properties of the solvent.

A squared term is a term in the classical equation for the total energy that contains either the square of a velocity or the square of a space coordinate. There is one squared term for each degree of freedom of motion. Thus if the reaction creates an additional molecule that is free to FREE ENERGY, ENTHALPY, A N D ENTROPY 43 move independently, there is a contribution of 3 x 4RTfor the translation of that molecule along the three spatial axes and a contribution of 3 x )RT for its rotation (if it is nonlinear) about three axes.
