Abstract : This review brings together known examples of chemical activations systems, which have been accumulating increasingly in recent years, in order to clarify their nature and to exemplify their usefulness. The major emphasis is on activated molecules produced in electronic ground states; these are the simplest systems. Brief mention of some reactions involving electronic excitation will be given, however, since these include important examples of chemical activation. Some systems, such as atom recombination, have been studied in great detail in recent years and cannot be considered here at length. Ion-molecule activation reactions are arbitrarily omitted. Many chemical activation systems are not amenable to useful discussion, either because of their complexity or because insufficient data are available. Only some of these need be mentioned. The present review is not concerned with experimental techniques. (Author)
