🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Harville's class at UAB.

Solution: Based on the following reaction profile, how many intermediates are formed in the reaction AD?

Problem

Based on the following reaction profile, how many intermediates are formed in the reaction AD? A graph has reaction progress on the x-axis and potential energy on the y-axis (both axes unscaled). The curve rises from the initial state to a low peak followed by a trough, and then a high peak followed by a trough and another low peak, and then declines to the final state. (A) is the initial state; (B) is the trough following the first lowest peak, (C) is the trough following the highest peak, and (D) is the final state which is higher energy than the initial state.

Solution

We are asked based on the following reaction profile, how many intermediates are formed in the reaction AD.


A reaction profile/diagram is a diagram showing the change in chemical potential energy as the chemical reaction proceeds from reactants to the product.
