|Abstract:||Gaussian-2 ab initio calculations were performed to examine the six modes of unimolecular dissociation of cis-CH3CHSH+ (1+), trans-CH3CHSH+ (2+), and CH3SCH+ 2 (3+): 1+ → CH+ 3 + trans-HCSH (1); 1+ → CH3 + trans-HCSH+ (2); 1+ → CH4 + HCS+ (3); 1+ → H2 + c-CH2CHS+ (4); 2+ → H2 + CH3CS+ (5); and 3+ → H2 + c-CH2CHS+ (6). Reactions (1) and (2) have endothermicities of 584 and 496 kJ mol-1, respectively. Loss of CH4 from 1+ (reaction (3)) proceeds through proton transfer from the S atom to the methyl group, followed by cleavage of the C-C bond. The reaction pathway has an energy barrier of 292 kJ mol-1 and a transition state with a wide spectrum of nonclassical structures. Reaction (4) has a critical energy of 296 kJ mol-1 and it also proceeds through the same proton transfer step as reaction (3), followed by elimination of H2 Formation of CH3CS+ from 2+ (reaction (5)) by loss of H2 proceeds through protonation of the methine (CαH) group, followed by dissociation of the H2 moiety. Its energy barrier is 276 kJ mol-1. On both the MP2/6-31G* and QCISD/6-31G* potential-energy surfaces, the H2 1,1-elimination from 3+ (reaction (6)) proceeds via a nonclassical intermediate resembling c-CH3SCH+ 2 and has a critical energy of 269 kJ mol-1. © 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
