Transition state in a noisy environment
MetadataShow full item record
Transition state theory overestimates reaction rates in solution because conventional dividing surfaces between reagents and products are crossed many times by the same reactive trajectory. We describe a recipe for constructing a time-dependent dividing surface free of such recrossings in the presence of noise. The no-recrossing limit of transition state theory thus becomes generally available for the description of reactions in a fluctuating environment.
