We present a quasiclassical trajectory study of H+HOD(ν1, ν2, ν3) with an emphasis on how the reaction cross section and the branching between OH and OD products varies with the initial vibrational state of HOD and with relative translational energy. Comparison of the results for initial states (100) and (001) with recent measurements by Zare and co-workers, and for the 4νOH overtone with recent measurements by Crim and co-workers indicates good qualitative agreement.
