APCHEM-CL8NJD

The order of elementary reactions can be determined by the number of molecules participating in a collision.

Based on this knowledge, which of the following is LEAST likely to be an elementary reaction?

A

A unimolecular process such as $CH_3NC \longrightarrow CH_3CN$.

B

A bimolecular reaction such as $NO + O_3 \longrightarrow NO_2+ O_2$.

C

A trimolecular process such as $O + N_2O + N \longrightarrow NO_2+ N_2$.

D

A tetramolecular process such as $N_2+ 2H_2+ Cl_2 \longrightarrow 2NH_4Cl$.
