Abstract: In this work we have carried out ab initio electronic structure calculations, CASSCF/CASPT2 with the Pople's 6-311G(2d) basis set on the ground singlet potential energy surface (1 1A′ PES) involved in the title reaction. Transition states, minima and one 1 1A′/2 1A′ surface crossing have been characterized, obtaining three NNO isomers with the energy ordering: NNO (1Σ+)<cyclic−C2v NON(1A1)<NON(1Σ+g). Approximately 1250 ab initio points have been used to derive an analytical PES which fits most of the stationary points, with a global root-mean-square deviation of 1.12 kcal/mol. A quasiclassical trajectory study at several temperatures (300-1500 K) was performed to determine thermal rate constants, vibrational and rovibrational distributions and angular distributions. The dynamics of this barrierless reaction presents a predominant reaction pathway (96% at 300 K) with very short-lived collision complexes around the NNO minimum, which originate backward scattering and a similar fraction of vibrational and translational energy distributed into products. At higher temperatures other reaction pathways involving NON structures become increasingly important as well as the N-exchange reaction (3.02% of the branching ratio at 1500 K), this latter in accord with experimental data. It is concluded that the physical electronic quenching of N(2D) by NO should be negligible against all possible N(2D)+NO reaction channels.
