Competitive kinetic experiments were performed for the reactions of H atoms with HCOOH and DCOOD in aqueous solution. Excellent Arrhenius behavior is represented by log(k/M-1 s-1) = (11.6 ± 0.2) - (34.0 ± 1.1) kJ mol-1/2.303RT ) for HCOOH, log(k/M-1 s-1) = (11.8 ± 0.2) - (39.8 ± 1.2) kJ mol-1/2.303RT ) for DCOOD. Kinetic isotope effects are discussed in terms of transition state theory, supported by ab initio calculations, and in comparison with previous results for the abstraction from the formate ion.
