Abstract: The thermal decomposition kinetics of 2-chloroethylsilane and derivatives in the gas phase has been studied computationally using density functional theory, along with various exchange-correlation functionals (UM06-2x and ωB97XD) and the aug-cc-pVTZ basis set. The calculated energy profile has been supplemented with calculations of kinetic rate constants under atmospheric pressure and in the fall-off regime, using transition state theory (TST) and statistical Rice–Ramsperger–Kassel–Marcus (RRKM) theory. Activation energies and rate constants obtained using the UM06-2x/aug-cc-pVTZ approach are in good agreement with the experimental data. The decomposition of 2-chloroethyltriethylsilane species into the related products [C2H4 + Et3SiCl] is characterized by 6 successive structural stability domains associated to the sequence of catastrophes C8H19SiCl: 6-C†FCC†[FF]-0: C6H15SiCl + C2H4. Breaking of Si–C bonds and formation of Si–Cl bonds occur in the vicinity of the transition state.
