Abstract: Ab initio calculations of the potential energy surface for the F+O3 reaction have been performed using the UMP2 methods. The geometry optimizations of the reactants, products, intermediates and transition states were made at the UMP2/6311+G level. Finally, the reaction potential barriers were calculated more accurately at the UQCISD(T)/6311+G level. The zeropoint energies are also corrected. The results show that the fluorine atom trends intensively to react with the ozone.

Key words: Ozone, Transition states, Ab initio
