Title:   Structure-reactivity relationship in ketones plus OH reactions: A quantum mechanical and TST approach

Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2004ALV/CRU2740-2749

Reaction:   (CH3)2CO + ·OHCH3C(O)CH2(·) + H2O
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   280 - 440 K
Rate expression:   5.18x10-12 [cm3/molecule s] e-8201 [J/mole]/RT
Category:  Theory
Data type:   Ab initio
Pressure dependence:   Rate constant is pressure independent
Comments:   The authors used CCSD(T)//BHandHLYP/6-311G(d,p) calculations to study the OH hydrogen abstraction reaction from acetone, 2-pentanone, and methyl butanone (3-methyl-2-butanone). The calulations appear to confirm the formation of a hydogen-bonded transition-state complex involving the carbonyl oxygen for some H abstractions, particularly those beta to the carbonyl, which result in a 6-center transition state. Good agreement between calculated and experimental k at 298 K has been obtained.
