Ion-transport catalysis: catalyzed isomerizations of NNH+ and NNCH3+
High-level ab initio calculations using the G2(**) and G2(ZPE=MP2) methods have been employed to examine the effect of interaction with a range of neutral molecules (X) on the barrier to the degenerate proton-transport reactions in NNH+ (X = Ar, HF, CO, N2, H2O) and methyl cation-transport reactions in NNCH3+ (X = HF, H2, N2, HCl, H2O). It is found that the barriers to both proton and methyl cation transport are lowered from their values in the isolated ions of 182 and 152 kJ mol-1,...[Show more]
