in catalysis
For the process: \[k = A\ \text{e}^{\frac{-E}{R\ T}}\] where \(k\) is a @O04322@, \(A\) the frequency factor and \(E\) the @A00102@, \(A\) and \(E\) sometimes exhibit compensation, i.e. they change in the same direction with change in @C00876@ for a given reaction or with change in reaction for a given @C00876@.
