Kinetics and Mechanisms



The course provides an advanced overview of chemical kinetics, statistical theories of reaction rates, and the microscopic aspects of chemical reaction dynamics with an emphasis on determination of rate parameters using computational chemistry and ab-initio methods. Topics include kinetics of gas, liquid, and surface reactions; quantum chemistry; transition state theory; surface adsorption, diffusion, and desorption processes; complex reaction networks; mechanism formulation, sensitivity analysis and Chemistry of catalytic reactions.
