|Title:||Rate Coefficients of Some Important Interstellar lon-Neutral Reactions|
|Authors:||Ghosh, S N|

|Abstract:||Unlike neutral-neutral reactions which are mainly endothermic, most of the ion-neutral reactions in the interstellar space are exothermic. The energy released by the reaction of the latter type is less than the dissociation energy of the molecule. Such reactions may play dominant role in the interstellar medium. The information regarding the rate coefficients of polyatomic ionneutral reactions is meagre. A semi-classical approach is adopted here for calculating rate coefficient and its temperature dependence. The coefficients of certain important ion-neutral reactions in the interstellar medium are calculated and presented.|
