Abstract

A theoretical study is presented of the temp. dependence of the relaxation rate in barrierless reactions. A small change in the relative positions of the ground and excited potential surfaces can lead to a significant change in the relaxation rate. A small shift of the potential surfaces during the isoviscous temperature variation may be responsible for the solvent-induced crossover from an apparent negative activation energy to a large positive activation energy observed in recent experiments
