Aims. We aim to investigate fractionation reactions involved in the ^{12}C/^{13}C, ^{16}O/^{18}O, and ^{17}O balance.
Methods. Fulldimensional rovibrational calculations were used to compute numerically exact rovibrational energies and thermal equilibrium conditions to derive the reaction rate coefficients. A nonlinear leastsquares method was employed to represent the rate coefficients by analytic functions.
Results. New exothermicities are derived for 30 isotopic exchange reactions of HCO^{+} with CO. For each of the reactions, we provide the analytic threeparameter ArrheniusKooij formula for both the forward reaction and backward reaction rate coefficients, that can further be used in astrochemical kinetic models. Rotational constants derived here for the ^{17}O containing forms of HCO^{+} may assist detection of these cations in outer space.

1. Introduction
The ^{18}O and ^{17}O isotopic variants of CO are routinely detected in interstellar galactic and extragalactic environments and are used to determine the evolution trend of the corresponding ^{18}O/^{17}O ratio through the galactic disk. However, HC^{17}O^{+} has, to our knowledge, only been detected in two sources, SgB2 by Guélin et al. (1982) and in the molecular peak of the L1544 prestellar core by Dore et al. (2001a), who also refined the spectroscopic constants and the hyperfine coupling constants as the ^{17}O nucleus has a spin of 5/2. With the advent of sensitive receivers and large collecting areas available in modern observational facilities, such as ALMA and NOEMA, there is no doubt that more observations of these molecular ions will become available. However, the chemical reactions which may occur and possibly enhance the abundance of this rare molecular ion through isotopic exchange reactions, such as those occurring for HC^{18}O^{+} (Mladenović & Roueff 2014), have not yet been reported. The purpose of the present study is to derive accurate values of the exothermicities involved in isotopic exchange reactions and to propose the corresponding reaction rate coefficients which can further be used in astrochemical models.
The fractionation of stable isotopes can be ascribed to a combination of the mass dependent thermodynamic (equilibrium) partition functions, the mass dependent diffusion coefficients, and the mass dependent reaction rate coefficients. This is in accordance with quantum mechanics, which predicts that mass affects the strength of chemical bonds and the vibrational, rotational, and translational motions, so that temperature dependent isotope fractionations may arise from quantum mechanical effects on rovibrational motion. For a given vibrational state, the vibrational energy is lower for a bond involving a heavier isotope. The extent of isotopic fractionation varies inversely with temperature and is large at low temperatures.
Smith & Adams (1980) measured the forward k_{f} and reverse k_{r} rate coefficients for three isotopic variants of the reaction HCO^{+} with CO at 80, 200, 300, and 510 K using a selected ion flow tube (SIFT) technique. Langer et al. (1984) extrapolated the experimental values of Smith & Adams (1980) to temperatures below 80 K toward the limit of the average dipole orientation model of ionpolar molecule capture collisions (Su & Bowers 1975), producing the total rate coefficients k_{T} = k_{f} + k_{r} for nine temperatures over the range 5–300 K. Langer et al. employed a common reduced mass for three isotopic variants of HCO^{+}+CO studied by Smith & Adams (1980). The values for k_{T} were used in combination with theoretical spectroscopic parameters calculated for the isotopic variants of HCO^{+} by Henning et al. (1977) in order to model cosmochemical carbon and oxygen isotope fractionations. From the total massindependent rate coefficients k_{T} and the theoretical zero point energy differences ΔE, Langer et al. (1984) estimated the rate coefficients k_{f} and k_{r} for six reactions HCO^{+}+CO involving isotopologues containing ^{12}C, ^{13}C, ^{16}O, and ^{18}O.
Recently, we have investigated in some detail the isotope fractionation reactions of HCO^{+}/HOC^{+} with CO and of N_{2}H^{+} with N_{2} (Mladenović & Roueff 2014), hereafter called Paper I. In Paper I, we employed the global threedimensional potential energy surfaces developed by Mladenović & Schmatz (1998) for the isomerizing system HCO^{+}/HOC^{+} and by Schmatz & Mladenović (1997) for the isoelectronic species N_{2}H^{+} in combination with a numerically exact method for the rovibrational calculations (Mladenović & Bačić 1990; Mladenović 2002). For the reaction HCO^{+}+CO, we pointed out inaccuracies of previous exothermicity values, which have been commonly used in chemical networks. The new exothermicities are found to affect significantly the rate coefficients derived at 10 K, corresponding to the temperature of dark interstellar cloud environments.
The isotopes H, D, ^{12}C, ^{13}C, ^{16}O, and ^{18}O were considered in our previous work (Mladenović & Roueff 2014), resulting in six reactions HCO^{+}+CO involving hydrogen and six reactions DCO^{+}+CO involving deuterium. In the present work, we extend our analysis with the stable isotope ^{17}O. The possible isotopic variants of HCO^{+} and CO are connected by 15 reactions for the hydrogenic forms and 15 reactions for the deuterated counterparts. All 30 were studied here. Nominal abundances of oxygen isotopes ^{16}O, ^{17}O, and ^{18}O are 99.76, 0.04, and 0.20%, respectively (Mills et al. 1993).
Our theoretical approach is described in Sect. 2. In Sect. 3, we report the energies involved in all possible exchange reactions between CO and HCO^{+} (HOC^{+}) isotopologues and their deuterium variants, as well as the rate coefficients for the reaction of HCO^{+} with CO in the 5–300 K temperature window. We summarize our finding in Sect. 4.
2. Methods
Isotopic exchange reactions can occur according to different types as discussed in Roueff et al. (2015). However, the equilibrium constant K_{e}, which provides the ratio of the forward reaction rate coefficient k_{f} and the backward (reverse) reaction rate coefficient k_{r}, is uniquely defined under thermal equilibrium conditions.
We considered the exchange between an heavy (H) and light (L) isotope in the reaction (1)Under thermal equilibrium conditions, the equilibrium constant K_{e} is given by (2)using (3)and (4)where m(X) stands for the mass of the species X. In Eq. (2), ΔE is the zero point energy difference between the reactants and the products, (5)To express ΔE in Kelvin, we used ΔE/k_{B}, where k_{B} is the Boltzmann constant. The zero point energy E_{0}(X) for the species X is measured on an absolute energy scale. In practical applications, E_{0}(X) is given relative to the respective potential energy minimum. The electronic states are not changed in the course of the reaction of Eq. (1), so that the ratio of the electronic partition functions is unity in Eq. (3). The term f_{m} arises from the translational contribution. For the internal partition function Q_{int}, we used (6)where denotes the rovibrational energy for a total angular momentum J. The factor 2J + 1 accounts for the degeneracy with respect to the spacefixed reference frame and g for the nuclear spin degeneracy. Additional care is required for the nuclear spin degeneracy factor when different spin states (e.g., ortho or para) are involved either in the reactants or in the products, as discussed in Terzieva & Herbst (2000). The rovibrational energies are measured relative to the corresponding zero point energy .
For all the species involved in the reaction considered, the rovibrational energies are computed by theoretical means, considering explicitly the quantum mechanical effects due to vibrational anharmonicities and rovibrational couplings. The energies are used to evaluate the partition functions Q_{int} of Eq. (6) for a given temperature and then to compute the equilibrium constant K_{e} of Eq. (2). This approach has been pursued also in Paper I.
If the exchange proceeds through the formation of an adduct which can dissociate both backwards and forwards, we can define a total rate coefficient k_{T}, which is often expressed as the capture rate constant, (7)We then readily have (8)Such a mechanism takes place for the isotopic exchange reaction of ^{13}C^{+} with CO and isotopologues as well as for proton transfer reactions of the type (9)where A and B are isotopologues of CO.
At low temperatures, the dominant term in the expression of Eq. (2) for the equilibrium constant K_{e} is the exponential term. Approximating F_{q} ≈ 1, so that K_{e} ≈ e^{ ΔE/kBT}, it follows that (10)The partition function factor F_{q} of Eq. (3) provides thus a quantitative estimate of the goodness of the approximation of Eq. (10), which is often employed in kinetic models at low temperatures.
3. Results and discussion
All the isotopic variants of ^{12}C, ^{13}C, ^{16}O, ^{17}O, and ^{18}O for CO, HCO^{+}/HOC^{+}, and DCO^{+}/DOC^{+} are considered in this work. Using the global threedimensional potential energy surface of Mladenović & Schmatz (1998) for the isomerizing system HCO^{+}/HOC^{+}, we calculate the rovibrational level energies for six isotopologues of HCO^{+} and six isotopologues of DCO^{+}, as well as for HOC^{+} and DOC^{+}. For isotopologues of CO, we employ the CCSD(T)/ccpVQZ potential energy curve, developed previously (Mladenović & Roueff 2014). From these results, the zero point energy differences are readily determined for the proton transfer reactions of Eq. (9) involving HCO^{+} with CO and HOC^{+} with CO. The equilibrium constants K_{e} as a function of temperature are evaluated according to Eq. (2) for the isotope exchange reactions HCO^{+}+CO, which have already been studied experimentally (Smith & Adams 1980).
The spectroscopic properties for the isotopologues of HCO^{+} are summarized in Table A.1. The mode labels ν_{1},ν_{2},ν_{3} refer respectively to the higherfrequency (CH) stretching vibration, the bending vibration, and the lowerfrequency stretching (CO) vibration, whereby the bending vibration is doubly degenerate. By fitting the calculated ground state vibrational energies obtained for 0 ≤ J ≤ 15 to the standard polynomial expression, (11)we have derived the effective rotational constant B_{0} and the quartic centrifugal distortion constant D_{0} for the ground vibrational state. The ground state vibrational correction ΔB_{0} to the equilibrium rotational constant B_{e} is given by (12)where α_{i} is a vibrationrotation interaction constant for the ith vibration (Herzberg 1991). In this expression, we substitute our B_{e} values with the best estimate of the equilibrium rotational constant, computed employing the best estimate of the equilibrium geometry r_{e}(HC) = 1.09197 Å and r_{e}(CO) = 1.10546 Å due to Puzzarini et al. (1996). This approach yields our best estimate of the rotational constant for the ground vibrational state as . As seen in Table A.1, all of the theoretical values for agree with the available experimental B_{0} values within 11 MHz. Similar accuracy can also be expected for other HCO^{+} isotopologues that are not yet experimentally detected. For the fundamental vibrational transitions, our theoretical results agree within 5 cm^{1} with the experimental findings. In the case of the quartic centrifugal distortion constants D_{0}, the agreement is within 4.5 kHz.
Direct proton transfer via the collinear approach from the carbon or oxygen side of CO to HCO^{+}/HOC^{+} was studied in Paper 1 using the CCSD(T)/augccpVTZ electronic structure method. In all the cases analyzed there, the reaction was found to proceed through a stable intermediate protonbound complex AHB^{+} (see Eq. (9)), such that the reaction is barrierless in this description. In the case of the reaction involving HOC^{+}, it appears that the COcatalyzed isomerisation is a more likely event than the proton transfer reaction, as seen in Fig. 2a of Paper 1.
3.1. Zero point energies
The ground state vibrational energies calculated in this work for isotopic variants of CO, HCO^{+}, and HOC^{+} are collected in Table A.2. They are given relative to the corresponding potential energy minimum. On the potential energy surface for HCO^{+}/HOC^{+}, the global potential energy minimum is at −1.86 cm^{1}. In assembling Table A.2, we noticed that Table 1 of Paper I did not incorporate the energy shift of 1.86 cm^{1} for the zero point energies of D^{12}C^{16}O^{+}, D^{12}C^{18}O^{+}, D^{13}C^{16}O^{+}, and D^{13}C^{18}O^{+}. Accordingly, we list the zero point energies for all of the isotopologues of CO, HCO^{+}, and HOC^{+} in Table A.2 of this work. We note that the other results of Paper I are not affected by this misprint.

The zero point energies are graphically displayed in Fig. 1 for the isotopic ^{12}C, ^{13}C, ^{16}O, ^{17}O, and ^{18}O variants of CO and HCO^{+}. The largest difference ΔE_{max} seen there is between the zero point energies for the lightest and heaviest forms, yielding ΔE_{max} = 72.8 K for carbon monoxide and ΔE_{max} = 97.0 K for the formyl cation. The species containing ^{17}O possess zero point energies lying between the zero point energies of the ^{18}O and ^{16}O forms in Fig. 1 and Table A.2.
3.2. Reactions of HCO^{+} and HOC^{+} with CO
The zero point energy differences for the proton transfer reactions CO+HCO^{+}/HOC^{+} are presented in Table A.3. In accordance with the notation of Paper I, the reactions involving the formyl cation HCO^{+} are labeled with F and the reactions involving the isoformyl cation HOC^{+} with I. The deuterium variant of the reaction Fn is denoted by Fn(D), where n = 1–15, and similar for the other cases. The reactions F1F6 involving the isotopes ^{16}O and ^{18}O were studied in some detail in Paper I. Inclusion of the isotope ^{17}O leads to nine additional reactions, which are denoted by F7F15 and similar for the other variants. A complete list of possible reactions for the isotopes H, D, ^{12}C, ^{13}C, ^{16}O, ^{17}O, and ^{18}O is given in Table A.3. The exothermicities for the reactions F1F6, F1(D)F6(D), I1I6, and I1(D)I6(D) were already shown in Table 2 of Paper I. The proton transfer reactions I1 and I1(D) involving HOC^{+} were also considered by Lohr (1998).
The largest ΔE in Table A.3 is associated with the reactions F5 and F5(D) in the case of HCO^{+} and with the reactions I6 and I6(D) in the case of HOC^{+}. From Table A.3, we easily deduce that ^{13}C is preferentially placed in H/DCO^{+} and a heavier O in H/DOC^{+}. The reactions involving the same isotope of C in HCO^{+} and CO possess smaller exothermicities than the reactions involving different C isotopes, as seen by comparing for example, reaction F3 (ΔE = 6.4 K) with reaction F5 (ΔE = 24.2 K), which involve ^{18}O. The corresponding ^{17}O counterparts have somewhat smaller ΔE values, for example reaction F7 of ΔE = 3.4 K versus reaction F11 of ΔE = 21.2 K. In all cases, reactions involving deuterium possess slightly higher exothermicities, for example, ΔE for reactions F15 and F15(D) are 20.8 K and 25.3 K, respectively. The reactions with the isoformyl isomers have lower exothermicities than the reactions with the formyl forms. In several cases, the reactions HOC^{+}+CO proceed in the direction opposite to the direction of the corresponding HCO^{+}+CO reaction in accordance with the fact that the isotopic substitution of the central atom is thermodynamically favored. Table A.3 clearly exemplifies this effect.
The partition function factors F_{q}, the isotope exchange equilibrium constants K_{e}, and the rate coefficients (k_{f},k_{r}) for several temperatures between 5 and 300 K are given in Table A.4 for reactions F7F15 and F7(D)F15(D). This table complements Table 5 of Paper I, which provides analogous information for reactions F1F6 and F1(D)F6(D). The values of K_{e} are obtained using Eq. (2) by direct evaluation of the internal partition functions Q_{int} from the computed rovibrational energies. The forward reaction k_{f} and backward reaction k_{r} rate coefficients are calculated according to Eq. (8) using our ΔE values of Table A.2 in combination with the total temperature dependent rate coefficients k_{T} given by Langer et al. (1984).
In Eq. (2), F_{q} is a mass and temperature dependent factor, defined by Eq. (3). Its temperature dependence is due to the temperature dependence of Q_{int}. The mass dependence of F_{q} comes from the translational contribution f_{m}. In addition, the mass affects the effective rotational constants for a given vibrational state, as well as the reduced mass specifying the vibrational motion, yielding thus the mass dependent Q_{int}. In the low temperature limit relevant for dark cloud conditions, the discrete rotational structure of the ground vibrational state provides the major contribution to Q_{int}. For 30 reactions HCO^{+}+CO, given here in Table A.4 and before in Table 5 of Paper I, the factor F_{q} differs from 1 at most by 3.5%. Using F_{q} = 1 to compute (k_{f},k_{r}) by means of Eq. (10), we obtain rate coefficients which differ by at most 4% from the values listed in Table A.4.
3.3. Analytic representations of the rate coefficients
For the reaction HCO^{+}+CO, the total rate coefficients derived by Langer et al. (1984) are available for nine temperatures: 5, 10, 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 200, and 300 K. Using these values, the forward and backward rate coefficients are determined (see Table A.4) and fit via the popular ArrheniusKooij formula (Kooij 1893), (13)
This analytical expansion has one nonlinear parameter, so that we employ a nonlinear leastsquares technique (the LevenbergMarquardt algorithm) to obtain optimum values for the fitting parameters (Press et al. 1985). The resulting values for A, b, and C are given in Table A.5. The statistical uncertainties are given as rootmeansquare (rms) fitting errors, (14)
where N is the number of the known (input) data (x_{i},y_{i}) fit by a function f = f(x), so that f_{i} = f(x_{i}).
Fig. 2 Temperature dependence of the rate coefficients k_{T}, k_{f}, and k_{r} obtained in the fitting procedures.

The forward reaction rate coefficients k_{f} and the backward reaction rate coefficients k_{r} are fit separately since they represent elementary chemical processes. The difference between the parameters C_{r} for k_{r} and C_{f} for k_{f} is equal to the exothermicity for the corresponding isotopic exchange reaction, C_{r}−C_{f} = ΔE. This is easy to verify by comparing Tables A.3 and A.5. The fitting parameters in Table A.5 reproduce the values of the rate coefficients k_{f} and k_{r} at nine temperatures (Table A.4 of this work and Table 5 of Paper I) with rms deviations better than 2 × 10^{11} cm^{3} s^{1}. Mean absolute percentage deviations are better than 4%.
The variation with temperature of the rate coefficients k_{f} and k_{r} obtained in the fitting procedures are graphically displayed in Fig. 2 for all 30 isotopic variants of the reaction HCO^{+}+CO. At temperatures above 50 K, k_{f} and k_{r} exhibit a weak temperature dependence. The forward reaction becomes faster and the backward reaction slower as the temperature decreases, so that k_{r} tends to zero as T → 0 K. In Fig. 2, k_{f} and k_{r} are most different for reaction F5(D), associated with the largest ΔE value of 29.4 K in Table A.3. They are least different for reactions F9 and F10, attributed the smallest ΔE value of 3.0 K (Table A.3). The experimental results of Smith & Adams (1980) available for the reaction F1 at 80, 200, and 300 K are also shown (yellow circles).
In Fig. 2, the total rate coefficients k_{T} (blue lines) are obtained as k_{f} + k_{r} for each of the 30 reactions considered. The values of Langer et al. (1984) (red circles) are additionally shown along with their estimated uncertainties (vertical bars). Even though k_{f} and k_{r} are noticeably different for different reactions, the resulting k_{T} functions are similar, as expected from the model used. Our k_{T} results for reaction F5(D) best approximate the values of Langer et al. (1984) and can be used as an analytic representation for their values if/when needed.
The estimates of Langer et al. (1984) cover temperatures between 5 and 300 K. The analytic expressions of Table A.5 are accordingly valid only over this temperature range. Since the modified Arrhenius function of Eq. (13) goes always to zero when T → 0 K, the functional representations derived for k_{f} will also tend to zero at temperatures below 5 K. Prior to elaborating on other forms more suitable for kinetic applications close to 0 K, one may consider the inclusion in astrochemical kinetic networks of the analytic threeparameter representations for the rate coefficients k_{f} and k_{r}, derived here for the isotope exchange reactions HCO^{+}+CO (Table A.5).
4. Summary
In the present work, we have employed the fulldimensional quantum mechanical methods to calculate the rovibrational energies for all isotopologues of CO, HCO^{+}, and HOC^{+} involving the isotopes H, D, ^{16}O, ^{17}O, ^{18}O, ^{12}C, and ^{13}C. These results are used to derive accurate values of the exothermicities for possible isotopic exchange reactions. For the reaction of HCO^{+} with CO, all possible isotope fractionation variants are subsequently considered (in total 30 reactions). Values corresponding to the ^{17}O isotope are reported for the first time. The energy defects arising for the ^{17}O cases are found to be slightly smaller than those involved with ^{18}O.
For each of the reactions considered, the analytic threeparameter expressions are derived for the isotopic exchange rate coefficients k_{f} and k_{r}. These analytic representations can straightforwardly be introduced in astrochemical kinetic models in order to better understand the isotopic chemical evolution.
For all of the isotopologues of HCO^{+} involving H, D, ^{16}O, ^{17}O, ^{18}O, ^{12}C, and ^{13}C, we provide the fundamental vibrational transitions and the rotational constants. Our best estimates of the rotational constants can provide useful assistance in analyzing expected observations of the rare forms of this cation.
