It is a well-known fact that the rate of a given reaction is dependent upon the temperature, upon the nature and the concentration of the reactants and upon the presence of catalysts. But that which is not so well known is the mechanism by which these different factors actually influence or modify the rate of chemical change. More particularly is this true for mono-molecular reactions the number of which is known to be relatively few.
