Theoretical study on the gas-phase reaction of acetaldehyde with methoxy radical

The reaction of acetaldehyde with methoxy radical has been investigated theoretically by means of quantum chemistry methods at the BMC-QCISD//B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p) level. The title reaction included three manners, namely, H-abstraction, C-addition-elimination, and C-addition-isomerization-elimination. Based on our calculated results, the formation of adduct IM1 is not a nucleophilic addition reaction, but a π addition reaction. Rice–Ramsperger–Kassel–Marcus-transition state theory calculations are carried out for the total and individual rate constants of the determinant channels over a wide range of temperatures and pressures. The major products for the title reaction are CH3CO and CH3OH. The calculated rate constant (8.73 × 10−15 cm3 molecule−1 s−1) agrees well with the experimental value (k1 = 8.30 × 10−15 cm3 molecule−1 s−1 and 4.23 × 10−15 cm3 molecule−1 s−1).
