We develop a two-degree of freedom model of OH+CO⇌H+CO2 based on a realistic potential surface. Trajectory and RRKM results for this model are similar to their full dimensional counterparts. Accurate quantum studies of the model show that quantum and nonstatistical effects play an important role in determining HOCO lifetimes.
