Page(s):   211 - 219
Year:   2003
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2003DRO/PAP211-219

Reaction:   ·CH3 + Br2CH3Br + Br·
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   298 - 532 K
Rate expression:   5.42x10-11 [cm3/molecule s] (T/298 K)-0.74 e-1711 [J/mole]/RT
Category:  Theory
Data type:   Ab initio
Comments:   Rate constants based on ab initio transition states. Rate constants derived using both RRKM and QCT approaches. Energies calculated using CCSD(T)/6-311+G(d) wiht MP2/6-311+G(d) geometries. This rate expression is NIST fit to Table 5 in paper for the RRKM results.
