kinetic constants calculations are very demanding and non trivial at
all. There are several methods, but in my opinion few are very reliable.
First of all you can search for the Markov state approach (i.e. have
look to this <>
and related ref of Noe' F.). Another approach is based on joining
metadynamics and Markov theory
Finally you can read this last very interesting approach using smoothed
