intermediates

Postby Madelyn Cearlock » Fri Mar 15, 2019 7:49 pm

do you include intermediates in the rate law for a certain step?

Intermediates are in the rate laws for elementary steps but not in the overall rate law of the reaction

They are not part of the overall rate law but the elementary steps.

Intermediated are not in the overall rate law expression because they get created and used up during the reaction.

also make sure not to confuse intermediates for catalysts, which are first consumed then produced in a later elementary step, as opposed to intermediates, which are first produced then consumed during a later elementary step.
