Chemical Kinetics The study of reaction rates; –How fast does a reaction proceeds and what factors affecting it; –A measure of the change of the concentration of a reactant (or a product) as a function of time. The study of rate yields information on the mechanism by which a reaction occurs at molecular level.
Types of Rates Initial Rates –Rates measured at the beginning of the reaction, which is dependent on the initial concentrations of reactants. Instantaneous Rates –Rates measured at any point during the reaction. Average Rates –An overall rate measured over a period or time interval.

Instantaneous Rate: Rate of decrease in [Phenolphthalein]
Instantaneous Rate Value of the rate at a particular time. Can be obtained by computing the slope of a line tangent to the curve at that point.
Average Rate Consider the following reaction at 300 o C: 2 NO 2 (g) 2 NO(g) + O 2 (g) The initial concentration of NO 2 is 0.0100 mol/L and its concentration after 150 s is 0.0055 mol/L. What are the average rates of this reaction during the first 150 s and during the second 150 s?
Average rate during the first 150 s Solution: Average rate = = = 3.0 x 10 -5 mol/(L.s)
Average rate during the second 150 s Solution: Average rate = = = 1.1 x 10 -5 mol/(L.s) Average rate decreases as reaction progresses because the reactant concentration has decreased
Rate Law Shows how the rate depends on the concentrations of reactants. For the decomposition of nitrogen dioxide: 2NO 2 (g) → 2NO (g) + O 2 (g) Rate = k[NO 2 ] n : k = rate constant n = order of the reactant
Rate Law Rate = k[NO 2 ] n The concentrations of the products do not appear in the rate law because the reaction rate is being studied under conditions where the reverse reaction does not contribute to the overall rate.
Rate Law Rate = k[NO 2 ] n The value of the exponent n must be determined by experiment; it cannot be written from the balanced equation.
Rate Law An expression or equation that relates the rate of reaction to the concentrations of reactants at constant temperature. For the reaction: R 1 + R 2 + R 3 Products Rate = k[R 1 ] x [R 2 ] y [R 3 ] z Where k = rate constant; x, y, and z are the rate orders with respect to individual reactants. Rate orders are determined experimentally.
Types of Rate Laws Differential Rate Law (rate law) – shows how the rate of a reaction depends on concentrations. Integrated Rate Law – shows how the concentrations of species in the reaction depend on time.
Rate Laws: A Summary Our rate laws involve only concentrations of reactants, because we typically consider reactions only under conditions where the reverse reaction is unimportant,
Rate Laws: A Summary Experimental convenience usually dictates which type of rate law is determined experimentally. Knowing the rate law for a reaction is important mainly because we can usually infer the individual steps involved in the reaction from the specific form of the rate law.
Rate Order The power or exponent of the concentration of a given reactant in the rate law. It indicates the degree in which the rate depends on the concentration of that particular reactant. The sum of the powers of the concentrations is referred to as the overall order for the reaction.
Expressions of Reaction Rates and Their Stoichiometric Relationships Consider the reaction: 2N 2 O 5 4NO 2 + O 2 Rate of disappearance of N 2 O 5 = Rate of formation of NO 2 = Rate of formation of O 2 = Stoichiometric relationships of these rates
Expressions of Reaction Rates For a general reaction, aA + bB → cC + dD, the reaction rate can be written in a number of different but equivalent ways,
Rate Laws For a general reaction, aA + bB + eE → Products The rate law for this reaction takes the form: where k is called the "rate constant." x, y, and z, are small whole numbers or simple fractions and they are the rate order with respect to [A], [B], and [E]. The sum of x + y + z +... is called the “overall order" of the reaction.
Types of Rate Laws Consider a general reaction: aA + bB → Products The rate law is expressed as, Rate = k[A] x [B] y, Where the exponents x and y are called the rate order of the reaction w.r.t. the respective reactants; These exponents are usually small integers or simple fractions.
Types of Rate Laws 1.Zero-Order Reactions 1.In a zero order reaction the rate does not depend on the concentration of reactant, 2.For example, the decomposition of HI(g) on a gold catalyst is a zero-order reaction; 3.2 HI(g) → H 2 (g) + I 2 (g) 4.Rate = k[HI] 0 = k; (The rate is independent on the concentration of HI)
Types of Rate Laws First Order Reactions In a first order reaction the rate is proportional to the concentration of one of the reactants. Example, for first-order reaction: 2N 2 O 5 (g) → 4NO 2 (g) + O 2 (g) Rate = k[N 2 O 5 ], The rate of decomposition of N 2 O 5 is proportional to [N 2 O 5 ], the molar concentration of N 2 O 5
Types of Rate Laws Second Order Reactions In a second order reaction, the rate is proportional to the second power of the concentration of one of the reactants. Example, for the decomposition of NO 2 follows second order w.r.t. [NO 2 ] 2NO 2 (g) → 2NO (g) + O 2 (g) Rate = k[NO 2 ] 2
Determination of Rate Law using Initial Rate Consider the following reaction: S 2 O 8 2- (aq) + 3I - (aq) → 2SO 4 2- (aq) + I 3 - (aq)
Determination of Rate Law using Initial Rate Reaction: S 2 O 8 2- (aq) + 3I - (aq) → 2SO 4 2- (aq) + I 3 - (aq) The following data were obtain. Expt.[S 2 O 8 2- ] [I - ]Initial Rate, #(mol/L)(mol/L)(mol/L.s) 10.0360.0601.5 x 10 -5 20.0720.0602.9 x 10 -5 30.0360.1202.9 x 10 -5
Determination of Rate Law using Initial Rate Reaction: S 2 O 8 2- (aq) + 3I - (aq) 2SO 4 2- (aq) + I 3 - (aq) (a) Determine the order of the reaction w.r.t. each reactant. Write the rate law for the above reaction. (b) Calculate the rate constant, k, and give its appropriate units. (c) Calculate the reaction rate when each reactant concentration is 0.20 M
Determination of Rate Law using Initial Rate Solution: The rate law = Rate = k[S 2 O 8 2- ] x [I - ] y, here x and y are rate orders. (a) Calculation of rate order, x:
Determination of Rate Law using Initial Rate (b) Calculation of rate order, y: This reaction is first order w.r.t. [S 2 O 8 2- ] and [I - ] Rate = k[S 2 O 8 2- ][I - ]
Calculating rate constant and rate at different concentrations of reactants Rate constant, k = = 6.6 x 10 -3 L.mol -1.s -1 If [S 2 O 8 2- ] = 0.20 M, [I - ] = 0.20 M, and –k = 6.6 x 10 -3 L.mol -1.s -1 Rate = (6.6 x 10 -3 L.mol -1.s -1 )(0.20 mol/L) 2 = 2.6 x 10 -4 mol/(L.s)
Integrated Rate Law Graphical method to derive the rate law of a reaction: Consider a reaction with single reactant: R Products If the reaction is zero-order w.r.t. [R], Then,
Graphical Method for Zero-Order Reaction [R] = -k t, and [R] t = [R] 0 = kt; A plot of [R] t versus t yields a straight line with k = -slope.
Graph of Zero-order Reactions Plot of [R] t versus t: [R] t t slope = -k
Graphical Method for First Order Reactions If the reaction: R Products is a first order reaction, then Which yields: And a plot of ln[R] t versus t will yield a straight line with slope = -k and y-intercept = ln[R] 0
Graph of First Order Reactions Plot of ln]R] t versus t: ln[R] t t slope = -k
Plots of [A] and ln[A] versus time for First Order Reactions
Graphical Method for Second Order Reactions If the reaction: R Products follows second- order kinetics, then or and A plot of 1/[R] t versus t will yield a straight line with slope = k and y-intercept = 1/[R] 0
Characteristics of plots for zero, first, and second order reactions The graph that is linear indicates the order of the reaction with respect to A (reactant): For a zero order reaction, Rate = k (k = - slope) For a 1st order reaction, Rate = k[A] (k = - slope) For a 2nd order reaction, Rate = k[A] 2 (k = slope) For zero-order reaction, half-life, t 1/2 = [R] 0 /2k; For first order reaction, half-life, t 1/2 = 0.693/k; For second order reaction, half-life, t 1/2 = 1/k[R] 0 ;
Half-Lives of Reactions For zero-order reaction: t 1/2 = [R] 0 /2k; For first-order reaction: t 1/2 = 0.693/k; For second-order reaction: t 1/2 = 1/ ( k[R] 0 ) Note: For first-order reaction, the half-life is independent of the concentration of reactant, but for zero-order and second-order reactions, the half-lives are dependent on the initial concentrations of the reactants.
Exercise Consider the reaction aA Products. [A] 0 = 5.0 M and k = 1.0 x 10 –2 (assume the units are appropriate for each case). Calculate [A] after 30.0 seconds have passed, assuming the reaction is: a) Zero order b) First order c) Second order 4.7 M 3.7 M 2.0 M
Reaction Mechanism The detail pictures of how a given reaction occurs at molecular level It consists of a set of elementary steps that shows probable reactions involving molecular species – including reaction intermediates. The sum of these elementary steps yields the overall balanced equation for the reaction.
Elementary Steps For example, the overall reaction: 2A + B C + D may involves the following elementary steps in its mechanism: Step-1: A + B X; Step-2: X + A Y; Step-3: Y C + D Overall reaction: 2A + B C + D;

Rate Law for Elementary Processes: Elementary ReactionsMolecularity Rate Law A productUnimolecular Rate = k[A] 2A productBimolecular Rate = k[A] 2 A + B productBimolecular Rate = k[A][B] 2A + B productTermolecular Rate = k[A] 2 [B]
A Molecular Representation of the Elementary Steps in the Reaction of NO 2 and CO NO 2 (g) + CO (g) → NO (g) + CO 2 (g)
Reaction Mechanism Step-1:NO 2 + NO 2 NO 3 + NO Step-2:NO 3 + CO NO 2 + CO 2 Overall: NO 2 + CO NO + CO 2 The experimental rate law is Rate = k[NO 2 ] 2 Which implies that the above reaction is second-order w.r.t. NO 2, but is zero-order in [CO].
The sum of the elementary steps must give the overall balanced equation for the reaction. The mechanism must agree with the experimentally determined rate law. Reaction Mechanism Requirements
2N 2 O 5 (g) 4NO 2 (g) + O 2 (g) Step 1: N 2 O 5 ⇌ NO 2 + NO 3 (fast) Step 2: NO 2 + NO 3 → NO + O 2 + NO 2 (slow) Step 3: NO 3 + NO → 2NO 2 (fast)
A Model for Chemical Reactions For a reaction to occur: 1.Reactant molecules must collide; 2.Molecular collisions must occur with proper orientations; 3.Collisions must be energetic and lead to the formation of the transition-state complex; 4.The rate of formation of the transition-state complex is the rate determining step; 5.The transition-state complex eventually leads to the formation of products;
A Model for Reaction Kinetics All chemical reactions proceed through a transition-state complex; An energy barrier called activation energy (E a ) must be overcome to change reactants to the transition-state. The rate of formation of transition-state is the rate- determining step for the overall reaction; The rate of formation of transition-state is dependent: –on the frequency of effective molecular collisions, which depends on the reactants concentrations; –on the fraction of molecules with sufficient kinetic energy to overcome the energy barrier, and –on the reaction temperature
Collision must involve enough energy to produce the reaction (must equal or exceed the activation energy). Relative orientation of the reactants must allow formation of any new bonds necessary to produce products. For Reactants to Form Products
Dependence of Rate on Concentration This is contained in the rate law – that is, for reaction: aA + bB + cC Products Rate = k[A] x [B] y [C] z ;
Dependence of Rate on Temperature Rate depends on the fraction of “effective collisions” per unit time. –(Effective collisions are those with proper orientation and sufficient energy to overcome activation energy E a barrier. Thus rate depends on the activation energy and temperature, such that, –Higher activation energy implies high barrier and fewer reactant molecules will form the transition-state complex. This leads to a slower rate of reaction; –Higher temperature results in a larger fraction of reactant molecules with sufficient energy to overcome the energy barrier. This leads to a faster rate of reaction.
Relationships between rate, rate constant, activation energy, & temperature. Rate is dependent on rate constant, which is the proportionality constant that relates rate to concentrations (as depicted in the rate law). While rate constant is related to activation energy and temperature by the Arrhenius equation: k = Ae -Ea/RT where A is Arrhenius collisional frequency factor, T is the Kelvin temperature, and R is gas constant (R = 8.314 J/K.mol)
Graphical relationships of k, E a, and T From Arrhenius equation: k = Ae -Ea/RT ln(k) = ln(A) – (E a /R)(1/T) The plot of ln(k) versus 1/T yields a straight line with the slope = -(E a /R), or E a = -slope x R If k values are determined at two different temperatures, such that at k 1 at T 1 and k 2 at T 2, then ln(k 2 /k 1 ) = (R = 8.314 J/K.mol)
Exercise Chemists commonly use a rule of thumb that an increase of 10 K in temperature doubles the rate of a reaction. What must the activation energy be for this statement to be true for a temperature increase from 25°C to 35°C? E a = 53 kJ
Catalysts Catalysts are substances that are added to reaction mixtures to make the reactions go faster, but do not get used up by the reactions. A catalyst functions by providing an alternative reaction pathways with lower activation energy. It increases the reaction rate, but does not affect the reaction enthalpy or the equilibrium position. –It do not alter the reaction yields at equilibrium

Effect of a Catalyst on the Number of Reaction-Producing Collisions
Homogeneous Catalysts These are catalysts that have the same phase as the reactants. Example: 1.The formation of SO 3 from SO 2 and O 2 is an exothermic reaction, but the activation energy is very high. 2.The reaction is very slow at low temperature. 3.Increasing the temperature increases the reaction rate, but lowers the yield. 4.Adding nitric oxide, which leads to the formation of transition-state complexes that have lower activation energy, makes the reaction go faster at a moderate temperature.
Mechanism of catalytic reaction by nitric oxide on the formation of SO 3 Step-1: 2NO + O 2 2NO 2 Step-2: 2NO 2 + 2SO 2 2NO + 2SO 3 Overall: 2 SO 2 (g) + O 2 (g) 2SO 3 (g)
Heterogeneous Catalysis Most reactions involving gases use inert metals or metal oxides as catalysts. These solid catalysts provide surface areas for effective molecular to interactions. The solid surface facilitates the breaking and formation of bonds. For examples, Ni, Pd and Pt are often used in the hydrogenation of vegetable oil to make margarine and Crisco oil.
Catalytic Converter Heterogeneous catalyst used in automobile catalytic converters is a mixture of Pd, Pt, and Rh, which are embedded in ceramic honeycombs. These metals catalyze the following reaction, which converts toxic gases (NO & CO) to non-toxic CO 2 and N 2 : 2CO (g) + 2NO (g) 2CO 2 (g) + N 2 (g)
Catalytic Reactions in Industrial Processes Some reactions require specific catalyst. For example, Ni catalyzes the following reaction: While ZnO-Cr 2 O 3 mixture catalyzes the formation of methanol from the same reactants:
Enzyme-catalyzed Reactions In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process (the substrates) are converted by the enzyme into different molecules (the products).
