Nonmonotonic temperature dependence of the rates of ion-molecule reactions

Eran Rabani, D. M. Charutz, R. D. Levine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A minimum in the temperature dependence of the reaction rate of fast reactions can be due to a double minimum potential along the reaction coordinate. The two important points are the steric effects of the central barrier along the reaction coordinate and the extensive recrossing of this barrier. General considerations and detailed classical trajectory computations are presented.
