Abstract

Large basis set, well-correlated ab initio electronic structure calculations have been performed on the H3PO isomers, phosphine oxide and phosphinic acid. The difference in equilibrium stabilities is less than 3 kcal mol and the barrier to unimolecular rearrangement was found to be 68 kcal mol.
