In this work, the reactions of carbamyl and thiocarbamyl halides with NH3 were studied in the gas phase at the MP2(FC)/6-31+G(d) level of theory. Single point calculations were performed at the QCISD/6-311+G(3df,2p) to refine the energetics. The reaction mechanisms were also studied in aqueous solution. The structures were fully optimized at the CPCM-MP2(FC)/6-31+G(d) and refined by a single point CPCM-QCISD/6- 311+G(3df,2p) calculations. The reaction mechanisms for the title compounds were compared with those for the acetyl and thioacetyl halides. The lower reactivity of carbamyl (and thiocarbamyl) groups was explained by comparing the C=O and C=S π-bond strengths as well as resonance contributions in the ground state.
