In the first part of the Physical chemistry 4 devoted to reaction kinetics, the course is focused on the reaction rate, isolated reactions of various orders, simultaneous reactions, flow-through reactors and temperature dependence of the rate constants. Hard-sphere collision theory, activated-complex theory and chemical dynamics are thoroughly discussed here. The chain reactions of atoms and free radicals and reactions in liquid solutions are discussed, too. These subjects are trained by solving of selected reaction systems.
