Theoretical study of the reaction of the ethynyl radical with ammonia (C2H + NH3): hydrogen abstraction versus condensation

·C2H + NH3 → C2H4 + NH2
no rate data available
Potential energy surface for two channels of the C2H + NH3 reaction was calculated using quantum chemical methods. The abstraction channel producing C2H4 + NH2 is barrierless and proceeds through pre- and post-reaction complexes. The addition-elimination channel producing CHCNH2 + H has an energy barrier and a relatively tight transition state. The abstraction pathway is predicted to dominate at all temperatures, although the addition-elimination channel may become important at high temperatures. No rate constant values were calculated.
