5.68J 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.

5.68J will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by W. H. Green.

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