EORC. E BANTA PXTBMSHING corporation, MFNASHA, WISCONSIN PREFACE THIS booklet relies on lectures introduced at Cornell collage below the George Fisher Baker Non-Resident Lectureship in Chemistry from February to June 1935. So speedily is our lower than status of Chemical Kinetics altering that it's been essential to contain extra fabric as much as the time of the of completion of the manuscript in 1937. I savour the chance accorded me by means of the George Fisher Baker Fund. This lectureship, demonstrated a decade in the past, has en-, abled Cornell to do a lot for Chemistry in the USA. It has introduced the stimulus of international chemists to us and it truly is now best in a far wanted visitation of professors between our personal universities. Wisconsin college and Cornell college have a lot in com mon. i'm blissful to have had the privilege of telling each one concerning the different. fairly I desire to thank Professor J. Papish and the entire participants of the chemistry division for his or her cordial hospitality in the course of our friendly stopover at in Ithaca.

The whole subject has been discussed in great detail by SemenorT 18 of chain reactions both from a theoretical and experimental standpoint. FREE RADICALS The theory of reaction chains is able to account for perimental facts in kinetics, but there many ex- a large group of reactions, particularly in organic chemistry, which can be given a chain mechanism only if one admits the temporary existence of fragments of molecules or free radicals (CH 3 for example) which are forbidis classical rules of valence.
Lindemann's suggestion was amplified in 1926 by Hinshel- wood 8 and by Fowler and Rideal. 9 Independently and practically 10 simultaneously Rice and Ramsperger proposed the fairly comfor collision theory which acmathematical treatment the plete counted for all the facts and predicted quantitatively the decrease Kassel 11 in reaction velocity constant at decreased pressures. still and a further refinement theories introduced amplified these based on the quantum theory. The idea of the elaborated collision hypothesis can be made clear by reference to a mechanical analogy of a reservoir.
The radiation hypothesis was proposed in an indefinite way as early as 1913. Simultaneously, about 1918, and 1919, Perrin in France, and W. C. Me. Lewis in England, and Trautz in by Perrin the hypotheses which have been grouped together as the radiation hypothesis. Perrin undoubtedly had Germany proposed 1 More details are given in Chem. , V, 39-66 (1928). 31 CHEMICAL KINETICS 32 but Lewis contributed most to chemical kinetics, and Trautz did more in experimental work. The postulates of the radiation hypothesis may be summarized priority, as follows: (1) Activation of molecules in chemical reaction by radiation emitted from the walls is produced of the containing vessel.
