Woolley's revolutionary proposal that quantum mechanics does not sanction the concept of "molecular structure" - which is but only a "metaphor" - has fundamental implications for physical organic chemistry. On the one hand, the Uncertainty Principle limits the precision with which transition state structures may be defined; on the other, extension of the structure concept to the transition state may be unviable. Attempts to define transition states have indeed caused controversy. Consequences for molecular recognition, and a mechanistic classification, are also discussed.
