Reaction dynamics simulations of the identity S(N)2 reaction H(2)O + HOOH(2)(+)--> H(2)OOH(+)+ H(2)O. Requirements for reaction and competition with proton transfer.

Abstract

Despite the fact that the transition structure of the gas phase S(N)2 reaction H(2)O + HOOH(2)(+)--> HOOH(2)(+)+ H(2)O is well below the reactants in potential energy, the reaction has not yet been observed by experiment. Variational transition state RRKM theory reveals a strong preference for the competing proton transfer reaction H(2)O + HOOH(2)(+)--> H(3… (More)
