Thermodynamics and Kinetics Lecture 34 Notes: Chain Reaction

Today’s lecture is 46 minutes.

Initiation (slow), intermediate, propagation, termination

I1 + R = I2+

1) Stable chain/stationary reactions are constant in time. I1 component is constant in time.

2) Unstable, nonstationary. Nonconstant amount of intermediate.

Cycle P2
1 2
2 4
3 8
4 16

from 1 mole to 2. C2H6 and H2 will also be formed. Rate = k (CH2CHO)^(3/4) which is weird, maybe a chain rxn.

Initiation: CH3CHO k1 CH3. + CHO
Propagation: CH3. + CH2CHO k2 CH3CO. + CH4
.CH3CHO k3 .CH3 + CO
Termination: 2 CH3. k4 C2H6

dCH4/dt = k2(CH3.)(CH2CHO)
dCH3./dt = k1 (CH3CHO) – k2(CH3)(CH2CHO) + k3(CH3CHO) – k4(CH3.)^2
It’s all bean-counting.

(CH3.) = k2 sqrt (k1/2k4) (CH3CHO)^

Chain length is the number of propogation steps before terminating.
Number of prop steps/initiation/termination step

rate of prop/rate of term = (_)2
a few hundred is typical, thousands to millions of polymers.

Then he does something incredible, a proof by contradiction. It relates to explosions in low pressure and high pressure regimes.

1st Law dU = dQ + dW
2nd Law dS = dQ rev/T
3rd Law OK, s=0
