Abstract:While the Marcus equation had been developed to model electron transfer reactions, many researchers have applied it to atom transfer reactions. The model works well until very exothermic or endothermic reactions are encountered. However, including a Pauli repulsion term in the derivation of the Marcus equation leads to a simple equation which does extend out to very exothermic and endothermic reactions. The new model agrees with the Marcus equation at all other intermediate energies.
