Solid-state reactions, dynamics in molecular crystals

  title={Solid-state reactions, dynamics in molecular crystals},
  author={Gerd Kaupp},
Abstract The mechanism of solid-state reactions has found much interest over the years. The hypothesis of minimal atomic and molecular movements did not withstand experimental scrutiny by supermicroscopy. Rather the occurrence of far-reaching and strictly lattice-controlled molecular migrations has been proven for reactions with change of the molecular shape. The crystal packing gives now much more profound information than the mere listing of distances of reaction centers. Topotactic single… CONTINUE READING
