5.68[J] Kinetics of Chemical Reactions


Class Info

Experimental and theoretical aspects of chemical reaction kinetics, including transition-state theories, molecular beam scattering, classical techniques, quantum and statistical mechanical estimation of rate constants, pressure-dependence and chemical activation, modeling complex reacting mixtures, and uncertainty/ sensitivity analyses. Reactions in the gas phase, liquid phase, and on surfaces are discussed with examples drawn from atmospheric, combustion, industrial, catalytic, and biological chemistry.

This class has 5.62, 10.37, and 10.65 as prerequisites.

5.68[J] will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by W. H. Green.

This class counts for a total of 9 credits. This is a graduate-level class.

In the Spring 2015 Subject Evaluations, 5.68[J] was rated 5.5 out of 7.0. You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Kinetics of Chemical Reactions site.
