Abstract Various procedures for constructing transition amplitudes for chemical reactions in the distorted wave approximation are demonstrated. Calculations are performed for the collinear reaction H+H2(ν = 0) → H2(ν = 0) + H at low energies. Comparison is made with exact results after unitarization is invoked through (1) exponential unitarization and (2) the Condon approximation. In the threshold region the Condon approximation gives quite reasonable agreement with exact results.
