Transition states for attack by H and OH at the C-H and C-I bonds of CH3I have been
characterized at the Gaussian-2 level of theory. The results are employed in transition state theory
analyses to obtain ab initio rate constants and product branching ratios. For the H reaction the
major pathway is predicted to be I-atom abstraction, while for OH attack H-atom abstraction is
faster than HOI formation. The rate constants agree well with measurements at around room
temperature and are extrapolated to combustion conditions. The contributions of the title
reactions to the flame chemistry of CH3I are assessed.
