CHM 643 Reactive intermediate has been important investigated in physical organic chemistry. It classes to carbocations, carbenes, carbanions and free radicals. Recently, observable intermediate classified as reactive, and an unobservable intermediate is kinetically when occurs at a branch point in a mechanism. A reactive intermediate is formed in the rate determining step of a reaction and then goes to give products in low barrier. Also, the hydrocarbon reaction of terminal alkenes gives mixtures of primary and secondary boranes that formed in an exothermic biomolecular step. Carpenter, et al study outlined of reactive intermediate. They mentioned that the assumptions about the behavior reactive intermediate. The first one is a reactive intermediate should proceed on to products that is independent of its mode generation. The second one is the equilibrium geometry of the intermediate should be reflected in the product ratio especially on a symmetrical intermediate. According to this study, these assumptions appear to be self-evidently correct because a kinetic analysis that called statistical approximation, which posits that IVR much faster than any chemical events, and solvent reorganization is sufficiently fast. Therefore, an intermediate formed in an exothermic step that it may carry excess energy in vibrations, rotation and translations. However, this study also reported that intermediate may behaving badly. For many reactions occurring via supposedly…
