|摘要:||A second example of a barrierless reaction between two closed-shell molecules is reported. The reaction F-2+CH3SSCH3 has been investigated with crossed molecular beam experiments and ab initio calculations. Compared with previous results of the F-2+CH3SCH3 reaction [J. Chem. Phys. 127, 101101 (2007); J. Chem. Phys. 128, 104317 (2008)], a new product channel leading to CH3SF+CH3SF is observed to be predominant in the title reaction, whereas the anticipated HF+C2H5S2F channel is not found. In addition, the F+C2H6S2F product channel, the analog to the F+C2H6SF channel in the F-2+CH3SCH3 reaction, opens up at collision energies higher than 4.3 kcal/mol. Angular and translational energy distributions of the products are reported and collision energy dependences of the reaction cross section and product branching ratio are shown. The reaction barrier is found to be negligible (< 1 kcal/mol). Multireference ab initio calculations suggest a reaction mechanism involving a short-lived intermediate which can be formed without activation energy.|
