Comments:   The importance of tunnelling in the studied reaction at very low temperatures was studied with harmonic quantum transition state theory. To optimize the quantum transition state, the authors used both fitted potential energy surfaces and direct dynamics, where forces and energies are calculated by a quantum chemistry code on the fly as they are needed. Rate constants were calculated for a range of temperatures; however, no Arrhenius expression is given for obtained the k(T) dependence. Instead, rate constants for individual temperatures are presented in a graphical format.
