The reaction mechanism between cyclopropenylidene and methyleneimine has been systematically investigated at the MP2/6–31+G٭ level of theory, including geometry optimization, vibrational analysis, and energy property for the involved stationary points on the potential energy surface. The energies of the different species are calculated by the single point energy calculations of CCSD(T)/6-31+G*//MP2/6-31+G٭ level. It was found that an important initial intermediate (INTA) characterized by spiro-compound structure has been located along the three pathways (1), (2R), and (2L) firstly. After that, another common intermediate (INTB) has been formed via TSB. At last, three different products possessing three- and four-membered ring characters have been obtained through corresponding reaction pathways. In the first reaction pathway (1), a three-membered ring alkyne compound has been obtained. As for the other two reaction pathways (2R) and (2L), the four-membered ring conjugated diene compound has been produced. As a result, the energy barrier of the rate-determining step of the pathway (1) is lower than that of the pathway (2R) and (2L), and the ultima product of pathway (2R) and (2L) is more stable than that of the pathway (1).
