A Tricky Reaction Mechainsm

  1. Mar 10, 2004 #1
    Hi all,

    I am having trouble determing the reaction mechanism for the Haber Process

    N(2) + 3H(2) arrow right 2NH3

    I can think of numerous different reaction mech that could lead to these end products. I am pretty sure that this will require a catalyis (althought i dont know what it is) because N2 has a strong 3x bond

    thank you

    Yep, it's reaction catalyzed on/with solid (usually) iron catalyst.
    Its multi step reaction, and me being to tired right now, and fact that the best explanation is given by picture (catalyst + reactants), will lead you to www.google.com . I’m sure you’ll find answer there.
