The RPMD rate coefficient is calculated using the Bennett–Chandler method as a product of a static (centroid density quantum transition state theory (QTST) rate) and a dynamic (ring polymer transmission coefficient) factor. The computational procedure is general and can be used to treat bimolecular polyatomic reactions of any ... Title of program: RPMDrate Catalogue Id: AENW_v1_0 Nature of problem The RPMDrate program calculates thermal bimolecular rate coefficients of thermally activated atom-diatom and more complex bimolecular chemical reactions in the gas phase.
