Ab initio calculations were performed to obtain local energy extrema, including an effect of reagents, intermediates, and reaction products on the potential energy surface for the C9H7+O2 reaction, playing a significant role in oxidation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons at combustion conditions. The final products, determined as a result of the calculations are styrenyl radical C8H7+CO2, ortho-vinyl phenyl radical C8H7+CO2 and 1-H-inden-1-one C9H6O+OH, which is predicted to be the prevailing reaction product.
