Theoretical study of the Reactions of H+H2 and Its Isotopic Variants Inter- and Intramolecular Isotope effect
Ju-Beom Song
Quasiclassical trajectory calculations were carried out for the reactions of H+H2 (V=O, J=O) and its isotope variants on the Siegbahn-Liu-Truhlar-Horowitz potential energy surface for the relative energies E between 6 and 150 kcal/mol. The goal of the work was to understand the inter- and intramolecular isotope effects. We examine the relative motion of reactants during the collision using the method of analysis that monitors the intermolecular properties (internuclear distances, geometry of reactants, and final product). As in other works, we find that the heavier the incoming atom is, the greater the reaction cross section is at the same collision energy. Using the method of analysis we prove that the intermolecular isotope effect is contributed mainly by differences in reorientation due to the different reduced masses. We show that above E=30 kcal/mol recrossing also contributes to the intermolecular isotope effect. For the intramolecular isotope effect in the reactions of H+HD and T+HD, we reach the same conclusions as in the systems of O(3P)+HD, F+HD, and Cl+HD. That is, the intramolecular isotope effect below E=150 kcal/mol is contributed by reorientation, recrossing, and knockout type reactions.
