An improved treatment of spectator mode vibrations in reduced dimensional quantum dynamics: application to the hydrogen abstraction reactions mu + CH4, H + CH4, D + CH4, and CH3 + CH4.
A method for projecting chemical reaction surface coordinates from a Hessian in curvilinear internal coordinates has recently been developed. Here we introduce a modification to this approach which allows for analytical evaluation of the necessary coordinate derivatives, thus reducing the number of ab initio calculations required. We apply this method to the determination of spectator mode frequencies and zero-point energies for the series of hydrogen abstraction reactions X + CH(4) --> XH...Expand abstract
