Accurate quantum cross sections for the Cl + HC1 → ClH + Cl reaction using an extended LEPS potential-energy surface and the centrifugal sudden distorted wave method are presented, which indicate that the product HC1 is highly rotationally excited (receiving 40-50% of the available energy) and that the shape of the product rotational distribution is nearly independent of reagent rotational state.
