Textbook Problem

Why is a termolecular elementary step likely to be the slowest in a mechanism?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Explanation has to be given for the given why termolecular reactions are likely to be slowest.

Concept Introduction:

Molecularity of the reaction is the number of molecules that is seen on the reactant side of an elementary reaction.

The reaction that involves in one reactant molecule is unimolecular reaction.

The reaction that involves in two reactant molecules is bimolecular reaction.

The reaction that involves in three reactant molecules is termolecular reaction.

Explanation

In order for the reaction to occur, the reaction should obey the collision.  The reactant should possess enough activation energy, and the reactants must collide in proper orientation...
