  22.6 Elementary reactions ã Elementary reactions : reactions which involve only a small number of molecules or ions.  A typical example: H + Br  2   → HBr + Br    ã Molecularity:  the number of molecules coming together to react in an elementary reaction. ã Molecularity and the reaction order are different  !!! Reaction order is an empirical quantity, and is obtained from the experimental rate law; Molecularity refers to an elementary reaction proposed as an individual step in a mechanism. It must be an integral.  ã  An elementary bimolecular reaction has a second-order rate law:  A + B → P   ã If a reaction is an elementary bimolecular process, then it has second-order reaction kinetics; However, if the kinetics are second- order, then the reaction might be complex. ]][[][ B Ak dt Ad    22.7 Consecutive elementary reactions ã  An example: 239 U → 239 Np → 239 Pu ã Consecutive unimolecular reaction  A → B → C  The rate of decomposition of A is: ã The intermediate B is formed from A, but also decays to C.
