Organic Lecture Series 3 • A reaction mechanism describes how a reaction occurs and explains the following. ¾ Which bonds are broken and which new ones are formed. ¾ The order and relative rates of the various bond-breaking and bond-forming steps. ¾ If in solution, the role of the solvent. ¾ If there is a catalyst, the role of a catalyst. ¾ The position of all atoms and energy of the entire system during the reaction. Reactions Mechanisms Reactions Mechanisms Organic Lecture Series 4 • Gibbs free energy change, Gibbs free energy change, Δ G 0 : – A thermodynamic function relating enthalpy, entropy, and temperature. – Exergonic Exergonic reaction: reaction: A reaction in which the Gibbs free energy of the products is lower than that of the reactants; the position of equilibrium for an exergonic reaction favors products . – Endergonic Endergonic reaction: reaction: A reaction in which the Gibbs free energy of the products is higher than that of the reactants; the position of equilibrium for an endergonic reaction favors starting materials. Δ G 0 = Δ H 0 –T Δ S 0 Gibbs Free Energy Gibbs Free Energy
