Abstract

The results of an accurate quantum mechanical treatment of the planar H+H2 exchange reaction on a realistic potential energy surface are presented. Full vibration-rotation convergence was achieved in the calculations, and this, together with a large number of auxiliary convergence and invariance tests, indicates that the cross sections are accurate to 5% or better. The reactive differential cross sections are always backward peaked over the range of total energies from 0.3 to 0.65 eV. Nonreactive j=0 to j′=2 cross sections are backward peaked at low energy (0.4 eV) shifting to sidewards peaking for E>0.5 eV. Quantum symmetry interference oscillations are very significant in the j=0 to j′=2 para-to-para cross sections for E≥0.6 eV. Reactive integral cross sections show two distinct kinds of energy dependence. At low energy (
