Bimolecular Reactions

Postby Victoria Draper 1G » Mon Mar 05, 2018 12:51 pm

In my notes I wrote that a bimolecular reaction when two species collide. By species are they referring to two of the same type of molecule colliding or does it have to be two structurally different molecules colliding for it to be considered bimolecular?

species I believe just means any type of molecule. It could be A+B or A+A (a and b representing molecules) in the reaction. Bimolecular just means two molecules having to collide.

bimolecular refers to any two molecules interacting

whether it be A + A or A+B
