Reaction Rates

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Chemistry book series (LNC, volume 77)

Summary

Rate constants of chemical reactions can be calculated directly from dynamical simulations. Employing flux correlation functions, no scattering calculations are required. These calculations provide a rigorous quantum description of the reaction process based on first principles. In addition, flux correlation functions are the conceptual basis of important approximate theories. Changing from quantum to classical mechanics and employing a short time approximation, one can derive transition state theory and variational transition state theory. This article reviews the theory of flux correlation functions and discusses their relation to transition state theory. Basic concepts which facilitate the calculation and interpretation of accurate rate constants are introduced and efficient methods for the description of larger systems are described. Applications are presented for several systems highlighting different aspects of reaction rate calculations. For these examples, different types of approximations are described and discussed.
