Energy Profiles Products and Reactants

Postby Aarthi_Lakshmi_2A » Mon Mar 06, 2017 2:36 pm

In energy profiles, do we simply write out the products and reactants or do we draw them using carbon line structures? And do we need to write something in the form [C.....A.....B] (with a superscript double crossed t) as part of our energy profile?

Please look at examples from your textbook or the internet for the format of energy profile diagrams. You can draw the structures but it often isn't necessary to do so.
