Abstract
The cross second-derivative of the activation energy,ΔG , with respect to the two component thermodynamic barriers, ΔG˚X and ΔG˚Y, can be given in terms of a cross-interaction constant (CIC), βXYXY), and also in terms of the intrinsic barrier,ΔG。 , with a simple relationship between the two: βXY = -1/(6ΔG。). This equation shows that the distance between the two reactants in the adduct (TS, intermediate, or product) is inversely related to the intrinsic barrier. An important corollary is that the Ritchie N+ equation holds (for which βXY = 0) for the reactions with high intrinsic barrier. Various experimental and theoretical examples are presented to show the validity of the relationship, and the mechanistic implications are discussed.
