LS-SIMat4 Potential energy curve A curve describing the variation of the potential energy of the system of atoms that make up the reactants and products of a reaction as a function of one geometric coordinate, and corresponding to the energetically easiest passage from reactants to products. Potential energy curve A curve describing the variation of the potential energy of the system of atoms that make up the reactants and products of a reaction as a function of one geometric coordinate, and corresponding to the energetically easiest passage from reactants to products. The very notion of potential energy curve implies the adiabatic (Born-Oppenheimer) approximation whereby electronic and nuclear motions are treated separately

5 U NIVERSITA DEGLI S TUDI DI P ADOVA Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat5 Reaction coordinate, potential energy surface Reaction coordinate: A geometric parameter that changes during the conversion of one (or more) reactant molecular entities into one (or more) product molecular entities and whose value can be taken for a measure of the progress of an elementary reaction (for example, a bond length or bond angle or a combination of bond lengths and/or bond angles; it is sometimes approximated by a non-geometric parameter, such as the bond order of some specified bond). Potential energy surface: A geometric hypersurface on which the potential energy of a set of reactants is plotted as a function of the coordinates representing the molecular geometries of the system.

LS-SIMat6 Franck-Condon principle and reaction rate Franck-Condon principle Because the nuclei are so much more massive than the electrons, an electronic transition takes place very much faster than the nuclei can respond Franck-Condon principle Because the nuclei are so much more massive than the electrons, an electronic transition takes place very much faster than the nuclei can respond Reaction rate and – electronic wave-functions of reactant and product – electronic Hamiltonian operator and – nuclear (vibrational) wave-functions of reactant and product – Franck-Condon factor

7 U NIVERSITA DEGLI S TUDI DI P ADOVA Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat7 Diabatic and adiabatic photoreactions Diabatic photoreaction: Within the Born Oppenheimer approximation, a reaction beginning on one excited state potential- energy surface and ending, as a result of radiationless transition, on another surface, usually that of the ground state. Also called non-adiabatic. Adiabatic photoreaction: Within the Born Oppenheimer approximation, a reaction of an excited state species that occurs on a single potential-energy surface.
