Title:   Computational Study of the HCCO + NO Reaction: ab Initio MO/vRRKM Calculations of the Total Rate Constant and Product Branching Ratios
Journal:   J. Phys. Chem. A
Volume:   107

Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2003TOK/MOS1066-1076

Reaction:   NO + HCCOCO + HC-N=O
Reaction order:   2
Rate expression:   no rate data available
Category:  Theory
Data type:   Ab initio
Comments:   Quantum chemical study. Rate constants derived from transition states using NIST ChemRate and Truhlars Polyrate programs. Geometry optimization done using B3LYP/6-311G(d,p). Energies obtained at levels upto QCISD(T) and CCSD(T)/6-311+G(3df,2p).

HCCO + NO first forms intermediate O=N-CH=C=O (nitrosoketene). This may decompose to form HCNO + CO or a cyclic compound -N=CH-C(O)- (Oxazetone). This cyclic compound then may decompose to for HCN + CO2. Good agreement between calculated rate constants for HCCO + NO -> PRODUCTS with experimental data, as well as branching ratios for HCNO + CO versus HCN + CO2 channels.

NOTE paper calls HNCO Fulminic acid which has a structural formula of C#N-OH. However, molecule HCNO in paper appears to be Nitrosomethylene HC-N=O looking back on work by others referenced in the paper.
