(CH3)2CO + Phenyl → C6H5C(O*)(CH3)2
DFT quantum calculations B3LYP/aug-cc-pvTZ energies. Rate expressions calculated using Truhlars Polyrate program. Tunneling correction CVT/SCT employed.
Quantum calculations found abstraction barrier of about 3.9 kcal/mol, C addition channel with barrier of about 9.4 kcal/mol, and O addition channel with barrier of about 12.4 kcal/mol. Thus, abstraction dominates. C addition channel can lead to beta scission of CH3 and formation of methyl phenyl ketone with calculated barrier of about 8.1 kcal/mol
Calculated barrier height of 9.4 kcal/mol
