The localized molecular orbital (LMO) theory is used to study the reaction mechanism of the isomerization reaction: H_3PO→H_2POH. The energy transition state (TS) of the reaction is also obtained by Powell's mehtod using 6-31G basis set. The resluts show that the lone pair electrons of oxygen atom play an forortant role in this reaction.

Key words: LMO, Isomerization reaction, Transition state
