One-site processes

In the molecular theory of non-ideal reaction systems, i t is necessary to consider successively the entire spectrum of configurations of neighbouring molecules that can influence the course of the reaction for the reagents at the central sites under consideration and weigh the probability of realizing the elementary stage for each of the neighbours’ configurations on the surface. Lateral contributions affect the probability of formation of ACs through a change in the activation energy, so the number of neighbours and the way they are located are important for the rate of the process.
