Barrier Height Effect on Cl+H2(D2) Reaction
- Received Date: 2005-12-27
Abstract: Three-dimensional time-dependent quantum wave packet calculation was performed to study the reaction dynamics of Cl+H2(D2) on two potential energy surfaces (CW PESs). The first CW PES is with spin-orbit correction; the second is without spin-orbit correction. The integral cross-section and reaction probability as a function of collision energy are calculated in the collision energy range of 0.1 eV to 1.4 eV. For reaction of Cl with D2, the reaction section with spin-orbit correction has a shift toward the high energy because the barrier height increases. As for the reaction of Cl with H2 at low collision energy, it is more reactive on the PES with spin-orbit correction than on the low barrier height PES without spin-orbit correction, due to the tunnel effect for the reaction of the Cl with H2. When the collision energy is higher than 0.7 eV, the reactivity on the low barrier height PES is larger than that on the high barrier height PES. It is believed that the barrier height plays a very important role in the reactivity of Cl with (H2, D2). For the Cl+H2 reaction the barrier width is also very important because of the tunneling effect.
