When comparing the various states of a reaction a g value, or energy barrier, can be given in a diagram. If two transitional states were to be compared would the one with the higher g be less formed than the other?
Higher G values entails that a molecule is less disordered and therefore usually more complex. On page 88 of the course reader however TS 1 has a higher free energy barrier than TS 2 primarily because a double bond must be broken for this transition state to form.
