The ring-polymer molecular dynamics (RPMD) was used to calculate the thermal rate coefficients of the two-channel roaming reaction H + MgH. Both reaction channels, tight and roaming, are explicitly considered. This is a pioneering attempt of exerting RPMD method to multi-channel reactions. With the help of a newly developed optimization-interpolation protocol for preparing the initial structures and adaptive protocol for choosing the force constants, we have successfully obtained the thermal… Expand

Ring-polymer molecular dynamical benchmarks for X + H2 insertion reactions
Abstract Rate coefficients of a class of prototypical insertion reactions, namely X  + H2 → XH + H, where X  = C(1D), N(1D), O(1D) or S(1D), are systematically investigated with ring polymerExpand
Bimolecular reaction rates from ring polymer molecular dynamics: application to H + CH4 → H2 + CH3.
The results indicate that the previous assessment of the accuracy of the RPMD approximation for atom-diatom reactions remains valid for more complex polyatomic reactions, and suggest that the sensitivity of the QTST and QI rate coefficients to the choice of the transition state dividing surface becomes more of an issue as the dimensionality of the reaction increases.

Chemical Reaction Rates from Ring Polymer Molecular Dynamics: Zero Point Energy Conservation in Mu + H2 → MuH + H.
For this reaction, the thermal rate coefficients calculated with RPMD are found to be in excellent agreement with the results of an accurate QM calculation, which can be attributed to the dominant role of ZPE in the reaction, which is accounted for extremely well by RPMD. Expand
A refined ring polymer molecular dynamics theory of chemical reaction rates.
The long-time limit of the new flux-side correlation function, and hence the fully converged RPMD reaction rate, is rigorously independent of the choice of the transition state dividing surface, which is especially significant because the optimum dividing surface can often be very difficult to determine for reactions in complex chemical systems.

This review examines some current aspects ofRoaming reactions with an emphasis on experimental results, focusing on possible quantum effects in roaming and roaming dynamics in bimolecular systems, to lead to a more inclusive definition of roaming reactions as those for which key dynamics take place at long range.

Rate coefficients and kinetic isotope effects of the X + CH4 → CH3 + HX (X = H, D, Mu) reactions from ring polymer molecular dynamics.
It is shown that the RPMD rate coefficients for the ultralight Mu reaction with CH4 are significantly smaller than the experimental data, presumably suggesting inaccuracies in the potential energy surface and experimental errors. Expand
