The OH + ClO reaction was discussed using molecular orbital and variational transition state theory calculations. It was found that the reaction took place primarily over the singlet surface by two main channels to produce HO 2 + Cl and HCl + O 2 ( 1 δ) with dominance shown by former one. The rate constants for both branches of the reaction were calculated and reported for a wide range of conditions, for kinetic modeling.
