ClO3 + ClO → ClOClO3
The authors investigated the mechanism of the reaction ClO + ClO3 = PRODUCTS on both singlet and triplet state potential surfaces with the modified Gaussian-2 method based on B3LYP/6-3111G(3d f ) optimized stationary-point geometries.
Their results indicate that the association reaction producing ClOClO3 and two lower barrier O-atom abstraction reactions take place primarily on the singlet state potential surface.
Rate constants were calculated using RRKM and variational transition state theories. Heats of formation, moments, vibrational frequencies and structures of the various species are given.
