The pressure dependent rate constant for the reaction, SiH4(g)→SiH3(g)+H was predicted using the Rice-Ramspger-Kassel-Marcus theory aided by Ab-initio molecular orbital (MO). It was calculated under conditions in which the temperatures were from 600 to 1500 K intervals of 100 K. The Arrhenius type rate expression was shown.
