Transition State Calculation Service

What’s a transition state?

A transition state is a very short-lived configuration of atoms at a local energy maximum in a reaction-energy diagram, or reaction coordinate.

  • A transition state has partial bonds, an extremely short lifetime (measured in femtoseconds), and cannot be isolated.

Note: Don't confuse a transition state with an intermediate. An intermediate is a species at an energy minimum in a reaction coordinate, and is (in theory) isolable. Carbocations and free-radicals are examples of intermediates.

Overall solutions

Transition state search is a very important content in computational chemistry, which studies the kinetic information of chemical reactions. The transitional search service provided by CD ComputaBio mainly includes the following steps:

Transition State Calculation Service 2

  • Step 1: Give a reasonable initial guess about the transition state structure.
  • Step 2: We use the method provided by the program to find the transition state to search.
  • Step 3: Confirm whether the structure obtained is a transition state structure.
  • Step 4: Confirm whether the transition state is connected to the reactant and the desired product.

  • The key to a successful TS search is that your initial geometry must be very similar to the expected TS, otherwise the algorithm will not be able to find it.
  • After the calculation, you will get the starting geometry, which may be because your initial geometry is too close to the starting geometry in structure (and possibly in energy).
  • You need to provide a more accurate initial guess structure to succeed.
