The theory can also be used to calculate the rate of reaction and conversion.

The activated complex theory (ACT) , formerly known as the transition state theory, is a more sophisticated theory of reaction rates that offers the following advantages over the collision theory:

1. It can be applied to reactions taking place in solution as well as in the gas phase.

2. The advantage that a quantity corresponding to the steric factor appears automatically, in contrast to the collision theory where P had to be grafted on as an afterthought.
