Abstract: The reaction mechanism between ozone and ethylene radical (C2H3) has been studied using the density functional theory (DFT) at B3LYP/6-311G** level. The geometries for reactants, the transition states and the products were completely optimized. All the transition states are verified by the vibrational analysis and the intrisic reaction coordinate (IRC) calculations. The results show that the ethylene radical (C2H3) trends intensively to react with the ozone.

Key words: Reaction mechanism, Ethylene radicals, Ozone, Density functional theory(DFT)
