Bimolecular reaction rates from ring polymer molecular dynamics: application to H + CH4 → H2 + CH3.
In a recent paper, we have developed an efficient implementation of the ring polymer molecular dynamics (RPMD) method for calculating bimolecular chemical reaction rates in the gas phase, and illustrated it with applications to some benchmark atom-diatom reactions. In this paper, we show that the same methodology can readily be used to treat more complex polyatomic reactions in their full dimensionality, such as the hydrogen abstraction reaction from methane, H + CH(4) → H(2) + CH(3). The pre...Expand abstract
