AbstractA brief review is given of transition-state theory, both for the case of unimolecular reactions in the gas phase, and for reactions in condensed phases. An argument is made that, within the context of this theory, heterogeneous freezing in Si is limited to rates much lower than collision rates by the difference between the entropies of the solid and the liquid.
