Title:   Ab initio group contribution method for activation energies for radical additions
Journal:   AICHE J.
Volume:   50
Page(s):   426 - 444
Year:   2004
Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2004SAE/REY426-444

Reaction:   2-Phenylpropene + ·CH3 → C6H5C(·)(CH3)CH2CH3
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   298 K
Rate expression:   0.0 [cm3/molecule s] e-24700 [J/mole]/RT
Category:  Theory
Data type:   Estimated: thermochemical, kinetic, or other
Comments:   1) Activation energies for 67 hydrocarbon radical addition and «beta»-scission reactions are calculated with the CBS-QB3 ab initio method. An extension of Benson’s group additivity method to activation energies is introduced.

2) Activation energies for 0 K and 1000 K are also listed. Partition function data are not provided and the temperature adjustments used partition functions that treat internal rotations as rigid rotor/harmonic oscillators.
