Substrate reactivity
Substrate Reactivity

Since the energy of the transition state is significant in determining the rate of the reaction, a primary substrate will react more rapidly than secondary (which is much more rapid than tertiary).

Hammond s postulate
Hammond’s Postulate

  • Related species that are close in energy are close in structure.

  • In an endothermic reaction, the transition state is similar to the product in structure and stability.

  • In an exothermic reaction, the transition state is similar to the reactant in structure and stability.

  • i.e. the structure of the transition state resembles the structure of the most stable species.

Endo transition state looks like product exo transition state looks like reactant
Endo- transition state looks like productExo- transition state looks like reactant
