Theory of Ion-Molecule Collisions at (1 eV-5 keV)/AMU

  • M. R. Flannery


In 1on-mo1ecule collisions from thermal energies, to a few eV, up to a few keV, various processes such as chemical reactions (nuclear rearrangements), charge transfer (electronic rearrangement) and rotational, vibrational and electronic transitions occur, rarely in Isolation except over limited energy ranges. Inelastic scattering changes the internal state by rotational, vibrational and electronic excitation of one or both collision Darteners while preserving the identity of each partner, in contrast to reactive scattering (chemical reactions, three-body ion-molecule association, charge transfer, dissociation, ionization) which changes the chemical identities. There are few theories which elucidate the coupling between reactive and inelastic mechanisms, since development of feasible theoretical treatments of each of the processes In isolation presents. In itself, a considerable challenge.
