Squib:   2004CHE/HUA5950-5955

Reaction:   CH3OH + Sc → CH3ScOH
Reaction order:   2
Rate expression:   no rate data available
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   Mechanistic information only
Pressure dependence:   None reported
Experimental procedure:   Other
Excitation technique:   Other
Analytical technique:   IR absorption
Comments:   1) This reaction product was not observed. CH3OScH is the main product. The reactions of scandium atoms and methanol molecules were investigated by matrix isolation infrared absorption spectroscopy. Scandium atoms were produced with laser ablation and co-deposited with methanol in an argon cryogenic matrix. The products were observed to increase as the matrix was annealed. 2) Ab initio calculations on the governing potential energy surface for this reaction are presented.
