Abstract: Tbe reaction path (IRC or MEP) of the reaction CH(~4∑~-)+H_2→CH_2(~3B_1)+H has been traced by Fukui's theory and ab initio calculation. Furthermore, the dynamic properties along the reaction path and CVT rate constants have been investi-gated by reaction path Hamiltonian theory and variational transition state theory. On this basis, the adiabatic and diabatic vibrational-state-selected rate constants were calculated. The results show that the effects of CVT method are notable, and the rate enhancement is also notable while H_2 stretch mode is vibrationally excited.
