activated complex


A collection of intermediate structures in a chemical reaction. During the course of the reaction, groups of atoms may pass through a range of transient configurations, not all of which will progress from reactants to products. The one configuration with the highest potential energy that can proceed to form products is termed the transition state. [..]
