E VALUATION of dynamic characteristics of chemical reactions includes two steps: construction of potential energy surfaces (PESs), of the reacting particles and analysis of the dynamics of a proper chemical transformation. Accurate theoretical analysis of the reaction including both steps is possible only for the simplest reactions (e.g., reaction between atomic and molecular hydrogen). In the majority of reactions that are of practical interest, approximate approaches are used together with various semi-empi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
