Rank the following compounds in order of increasing reactivity in electrophilic bromination. In each case, indicate whether the principal monobromination products will be the ortho and para isomers or the meta isomer, and whether the compound will be more or less reactive than benzene. Explain carefully the points that cause any uncertainty.
Chem 222 notes Week 3 Chapter 13: Kinematics Kinetics deal with how fast a reaction takes place. Thermodynamics deal with whether or not a reaction will occur. Kinetics and thermodynamics are not related to each other. The rate of reaction is the change in molarity with respect to time, dM/dt. For a reaction A 2B, the rate expression for the rate of reaction would be: Rate= -Δ[A]/Δt Rate= Δ[B]/2Δt Reactants have a negative sign in front of them, and the expression is divided by any coefficient that may be in front of a reactant or product. Four things affect rate: 1. Reactant concentration 2. Presence of a catalyst 3. Temperature 4. Surface area A rate law describes the rate of reaction in terms of the concentration of the reactants. RATE LAW IS DETERMINED E
