Bimolecular and Trimolecular Reactions

  • E. T. Denisov

Abstract

The kinetics of a bimolecular reaction of the type A + B → reaction products is described by the following equation (where x is the concentration of starting material that has reacted):
$$- \frac{{dA}}{{dt}} = k[A][B]{\text{ }}or{\text{ }}\frac{{dx}}{{dt}} = k({[A]_0} - x)({[B]_0} - x),$$
whence
$$\ln \frac{{{{[A]}_0}({{[B]}_0} - x)}}{{{{[B]}_0}({{[A]}_0} - x)}} = k({[B]_0} - {[A]_0})t.$$
