I am currently in the process of connecting transition state (TS) structures to other minima in order to determine a reaction pathway. Now I understand the basic concepts of this method. You start ...
Consider a chemical reaction where two different particles form another one $$O+O_2\rightarrow O_3.$$ I find it confusing how this can be an exothermic process. How to picture the release of ...
I'm familiar with the concept of a reaction coordinate from high school chemistry as some generic conformational parameter that all of the intermediate states of a chemical reaction lie upon. ...
