Analyzing Reaction Rates with the Distortion/Interaction-Activation Strain Model

Analyzing Reaction Rates with the Distortion/Interaction-Activation Strain Model
Kendall N. Houk, F. Matthias Bickelhaupt
A model for analyzing and predicting reaction rates is presented by F. M. Bickelhaupt and K. N. Houk in their Review (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201701486). This model is based on dissecting reaction profiles and energy barrier heights in terms of reactant properties, in particular, the strain associated with distorting the reactants and the interaction between the distorted reactants. The model is illustrated with examples from organic and inorganic chemistry.
