Abstract:
We have theoretically investigated the hydrogen abstraction reactions of H2O, H2S, CH3OH, and CH3SH by the CCl3 radical, which is of interest in atmospheric chemistry research. In this study, mechanistic and kinetic analyses for the title reactions have been performed at the W1 and the CCSD(T)/cc-pVTZ//M06-2X/cc-pVTZ level. Standard Gibbs free energies for all reaction channels at the W1 level with ZPE corrections were also calculated. Intrinsic Reaction Coordinate (IRC) calculations were performed to verify the connectivity of all the transition states with the reactants and products. All rate coefficients are computed by conventional transition state theory (CTST) with the zero-curvature tunneling (ZCT) and also Wigner's tunneling (W) correction in the temperature range from 200 K to 2000 K. The rate coefficients for each reaction channel are also evaluated by canonical variational transition state theory (CVT) with the small-curvature tunneling correction method (SCT) in the same temperature range. Three-parameter Arrhenius expressions have been obtained by fitting to the computed rate coefficients of all abstraction channels between 200 and 2000 K. The branching ratios for these reactions have been determined. This study provides the first theoretical and kinetic determination of the CCl3 rate coefficient for reactions with H2O, H2S, CH3OH, and CH3SH over a large temperature range.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
