A global ab inito potential energy surface and dynamics of the proton-transfer reaction: OH- + D2→ HOD + D-

Abstract

We report an accurate full-dimensional potential energy surface (PES) of the anion-molecular system OH3-. The PES was constructed by fitting 55406 ab inito energies from the CCSD(T)/aug-cc-pVTZ level of theory with fundamental invariant neural network (FI-NN) approach, resulting in an extremely small fitting error of 0.52 meV. Extensive quasiclassical trajectory (QCT) simulations were carried out on the PES to investigate the proton transfer dynamics (OH- + D2 → HOD + D-). The product D- translational energy distribution and angular distribution were calculated and compared with previous experimental measurements, in which reasonably good agreement has been achieved. The angular distribution at a high collision energy exhibits an exclusively forward scattering peak, indicating the direct stripping mechanism at high energies. With the decrease of collision energy, the reaction shows a predominantly forward scattering feature, with very small sideways and backward scattering amplitudes, revealing combined mechanisms from direct abstraction with short reaction time and complex-forming process with long reaction time.
