A compilation of recent experimental work on the mobility and longitudinal diffusion of SF6ions in their parent gas is presented and critically evaluated. Some progress in the extension of the E/N and pressure ranges over earlier work is observed. With the exception of very recent, mass-identified data for two positive ions, all other data have been derived from experiments lacking mass-analysis. The need for mass-analyzed data is stressed
