Abstract

When describing isokinetic effects by the model of selective energy transfer by resonance, it is sometimes found that the frequency of the forcing oscillator is quite different to that of the reacting molecule, i.e."resonance" is not a very good concept to use. By noting that the two frequencies thus found are related to each other as the ratios of small integers, e.g. 4:3, this dilemma is resolved. The investigation covers formic acid decomposition, homogeneous ligand displacement reactions of Ni(DMSO)(6)(2+) and the dissociation of CO2 on metal surfaces.
