Organic Reaction Mechanism

Postby harseerat_jajj_3G » Sun Mar 12, 2017 12:57 pm


For exercise #30, chapter 4 in the organic chemistry book, why won't the reaction occur at room temperature if the activation energy is 125 kj mol-1?

Page 154 in the organic chemistry textbook states that "reactions with activation energies below 80 kJ/mol can occur at room temperature, while those with larger activation energies require energy input to occur." Hope this helps!
