The rate coefficient for NH2+CH4→NH3+CH3 (R1) was measured in a shock tube in the temperature range 1591-2084 K using FM spectroscopy to monitor NH2 radicals. The measurements were combined with a calculation of the potential energy surface and canonical transition state theory with WKB tunneling to obtain an expression for rate coefficients. The standard theoretical calculations yielded reasonable structures and energetics for transition states for H-abstraction reactions.
