H2C=C=O + Cl → ClCH(.)CHO
No rate constants provided in this study. However, transition states with geometries, vibrational frequencies, energetics are computed - thus, rate expressions could be derived. Used DFT B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) method. Looked at most possible channels for reaction of Cl with Ketene.
Barrierless addition channels with CH2Cl-C(O)* and ClC(O)-CH2* formation are exothermic by about 19 and 27 kcal/mol. Most favored overall reaction pathway is elimination of CO from the chemically activated CH2Cl-C(O)* (CH2Cl + CO products) being overall exothermic by about 8 kcal/mol and all intermediates and transition states being below the energy of the reactants. Next favored channel is 1,1 elimination of HCl from the hot CH2Cl-C(O)* (HCCO + HCl products) being slightly uphill endothermic by about 6 kcal/mol with all transition states lying at energies below the product energies.
