Role of rotational states in the charge exchange of a dipole-bound anion with a polar molecule

Elementary Physicochemical Processes


The Landau-Herring method is applied to derive an analytical expression for the exchange interaction potential of a polar molecule with its own dipole-bound anion with account of the relative orientation of the dipole moments of the molecular cores. The potential obtained is used to calculate the cross-section of the resonant charge exchange of a polar molecule with a dipole-bound anion. The influence of the rotation of the molecular cores on the charge exchange cross section is analyzed. A new mechanism of transformation of the charge exchange reaction from quasi-resonant to resonant due to the compensation of the resonance detuning by changes in the rotational states of the colliding molecules is considered.
