      We point out that, using the first-passage time formalism, it is now possible to calculate metastable lifetimes in the limit of the free energy barrier which issmall compared to thermal energies. This opens the possibility of calculating rates for fast chemical recctions. Possible experimental checks include explosive branching reactions, decreasingly stable molecular series, and bistable molecular isomers.
