The mechanism for the reaction of radical FOO with NO was investigated theoretically. The electronic structure information for the singlet potential energy surfaces (PES) was obtained at the MP2/6-311+G(2df) level of theory, and the single-point energies were refined by the CCSD(T)/6-311+G(2df) level. The rate constants as well as the pressure and temperature dependence of various product channels for the reaction are predicted. The calculated results show that starting from the energy-rich intermediate (IM1), at room temperature 298 K and at 1 Torr, FNO is the exclusive product which is consistent with the experimental results. The present results will be useful to gain a deep insight into the reaction mechanism of FOO + NO reaction.
