Formatted abstract
Rigorous quantum nonadiabatic calculations are carried out on the two coupled electronic states (12A′ and 22A′) for the C + CH reaction. For all calculations, the initial wave packet was started from the entrance channel of the 12A′ state and the initial state of the CH reactant was kept in its ground rovibrational state. Reaction probabilities for total angular momenta J from 0 to 160 are calculated to obtain the integral cross section over an energy range from 0.005 to 0.8 eV collision energy. Significant nonadiabatic effects are found in the reaction dynamics. The branching ratio of the ground state and excited state of C2 produced is around 0.6, varying slightly with the collision energy. Also, a value of 2.52 × 10−11 cm3 molecule−1 s−1 for the state selected rate constant k (v = 0, j = 0) at 300 K is obtained, which may be seen as a reference in the future chemical models of interstellar clouds.
