Title:   Semiclassical Calculation of Reaction Rate Constants for Homolytical Dissociation Reactions of Interest in Organometallic Vapor-Phase Epitaxy (OMPE)
Journal:   J. Phys. Chem. A
Volume:   107
Page(s):   3708 - 3718
Year:   2003
Comments:   NOTE: The units of the bimolecular reaction rates are never stated. The best fit with experimental data for trhe CH3+CH3 -> C2H6 indicates that this rates are in liter mole/second.
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2003CAR/MOO3708-3718

Reaction:   ·CH3 + In → InCH3(singlet)
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   700 - 1000 K
Pressure:  1.01 bar
Rate expression:   3.12x10-13 [cm3/molecule s] e-81049 [J/mole]/RT
Category:  Theory
Data type:   Other theoretical
Pressure dependence:   Rate constant is pressure dependent
Comments:   Activation energy is derived from the bond dissociation energy, which was computed using density functional theory.
