In this paper, based on ab initio methods, the intrinsic reaction coordinate (IRC)of the reaction HCN+Cl→HCl+CN is traced at the basis level of UHF/6-311G. Along the IRC, the dynamical properties of the reaction are investigated. The theoretical rate constants of the conventional transition-state theory and variational transition-state theory are calculated, and they are for experimental reference. The product vibrational state distribution of CN for the reaction HCN(004,302)+Cl→HCl+CN is also calculated by the subroutine which is compiled using vibration transtion probability formula based on SCP-IOS theory. The calculated results are in good agreement with experiments.
