Title:   State-to-state dynamics of the Cl + CH3OH -> HCl + CH2OH reaction
Journal:   J. Chem. Phys.
Volume:   120
Page(s):   4231 - 4239
Year:   2004
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2004BEC/CAM4231-4239

Reaction:   CH3OH + ·Cl(·)CH2OH + HCl
Reaction order:   2
Rate expression:   no rate data available
Category:  Other
Data type:   Other
Comments:   No gas phase rate data are reported.

The authors describe an experimental dynamics study of the reaction at energies of 1960 +/-170 cm-1 (~0.24 +/- 0.02 eV). They report rovibrational state distributions of the HCl product obtained using REMPI and suggest that the details of the abstraction mechanism vary with the impact parameter. In all cases, the reaction of fast Cl atoms with CH3OH is with the hydrogen atoms on the methyl group, not the hydrogen on the hydroxyl group.
