Of the factors that may govern the rate of a homogeneous chemical reaction in solution, probably the least understood is the part played by the solvent. The lack of a clear understanding of solvent effects on reaction rates can be readily appreciated when it is realized that kinetic interpretations in such systems involve merely as one element the difficulties generally inherent in the interpretation of any physico-chemical behaviour in the liquid state or in solutions.
