The significance of kinetic analysis as a tool for understanding the reactivity and selectivity of organic reactions has recently been recognized. However, conventional simulation approaches that solve rate equations numerically are not amenable to multistep reaction profiles consisting of fast and slow elementary steps. Herein, we present an efficient and… (More)
The branching ratio of unimolecular decomposition can be evaluated by solving the rate equations. Recent advances in automated reaction path search methods have enabled efficient construction of the rate equations based on quantum chemical calculations. However, it is still difficult to solve the rate equations composed of hundreds or more elementary steps.… (More)
An autocatalytic cycle was found in the mechanism of autoxidation of triethylborane using density functional theory calculations. The reaction starts with the generation of an ethyl radical via slow homolytic substitution. Fast radical propagation then takes place through a catalytic cycle in which the ethyl radical acts as a catalyst.
