enforced concerted mechanism

Variation of reaction parameters in a series of reactions proceeding in non-concerted steps may lead to a situation where the putative intermediate will possess a lifetime shorter than a bond vibration, so that the steps become concerted. The transition state structure will lie on the coordinate of the More O'Ferrall–Jencks diagram leading to that of the putative intermediate.
