Abstract: The mechanism for the gas phase ion-molecule reaction of BH2+ with H2O has been investigated by using the B3LYP/6-311+G(d, p) and CCSD/6-311+G(d, p) methods. The geometries of reactants, intermediates, transition states, and products are optimized, and the topological properties of electron density of the chemical bonds are analysed. A ring-type and a T-type structure transition states as well as an energy transition state are found in the reaction (I).
