Title:   Ab initio calculations and mechanism of two proton migration reactions of ethoxy radical
Journal:   Chem. Phys.
Volume:   308
Page(s):   109 - 116
Year:   2005

Squib:   2005ZHA/ZHA109-116

Reaction:   CH3CH2HOCH2CH2·
Reaction order:   1
Temperature:   200 - 2500 K
Rate expression:   7.85 [s-1] (T/298 K)11.90 e-18624 [J/mole]/RT
Category:  Theory
Data type:   Transition state theory
Pressure dependence:   Rate constant is high pressure limit
Comments:   MPW1K/6-31+G(d,p) methods were employed to optimize the geometries of all stationary points and to calculate the minimum energy path (MEP). The energies of all the stationary points were refined at the QCISD(T)/aug-cc-pVTZ level of theory. The thermal gas phase rate constants were evaluated based on the energetics from the QCISD(T)/aug-cc-pVTZ//MPW1K/6-31+G(d,p) level of theory using both microcanonical variational transition state theory (lVT) and canonical variational transition state theory (CVT) with the Eckart tunneling correction.
