The reaction paths for the gas-phase molecular elimination of triethyl and trimethyl orthoesters were examined at B3LYP/6-31G(d,p), B3LYP/6-31G++(d,p), B3PW91/6-31G(d,p), B3PW91++G(d,p), MPW1PW91/6-31G(d,p), and MPW1PW91/6-31++G(d,p) levels of theory. The thermal decomposition of ethyl and methyl orthoesters involves similar transition state configurations(More)
The gas-phase elimination kinetics of the title compounds have been examined over the temperature range of 310-369 degrees C and pressure range of 50-130 Torr. The reactions, in seasoned vessels, are homogeneous, unimolecular, and follow a first-order rate law. The products are methanol and the corresponding methyl ketene acetal. The rate coefficients are(More)
DFT and ab-initio study on the mechanism of the gas-phase elimination kinetics of 1-chloro-3-methylbut-2-ene and 3-chloro-3-methylbut-1-ene and their isomerization Jesús Lezama a,b Abstract. The mechanisms of the gas-phase elimination kinetics of 1-chloro-3-methylbut-2-ene and 3-chloro-3-methylbut-1-ene and their interconversion have been examined at MP2(More)
The rates of gas-phase elimination of trimethyl orthovalerate and trimethyl orthochloroacetate have been determined in a static system, and the reaction Pyrex vessels have been deactivated with the product of decomposition of allyl bromide. The reactions are unimolecular and follow a first-order rate law. The working temperature and pressure ranges were(More)
