Nitrosoketene → CO + HC-N=O
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.
