Kinetic Isotope Effect in the Dissociation Reaction CHCl3 → CHCl2(+) + Cl(-)

In the dissociation reaction

the activated complex resembles the product CHCl2+. For C-H vibration take 800 cm-1  for the reactant and 1350 cm-1 for the transition state. At T=298 K calculate the kinetic isotope effect, i.e., k(C − H)/k(C − D).

For this first order reaction, when the products are in excited state, the rate constant is given by,
