Peculiar Rate Laws, Bond Dissociation Energies, and Relative Reactivities - Freshman Organic Chemistry - Michael McBride - Lecture 2 of 38 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Organic Chemistry

Description: Curious kinetic orders can be mechanistically informative. Fractional kinetic orders suggest dissociation of a dominant aggregate to give a smaller reactive species. An apparent negative kinetic order, due to competition with a second-order process, leads to spontaneous deracemization of chiral crystals. Changes in bond dissociation energies can be due to differences in bonds or in radicals.
