Abstract : This project was to investigate positive-ion/negative ion recombination reactions. The achievements are listed in the following: 1) Detailed chemiluminescence spectra from ion-ion reactions were recorded. 2) Spectral analyses yielded reliable assignment of the product state. 3) Product-state-resolved nascent population distribution was obtained for the first time for an ion-ion reaction. 4) the product-state rotational population distributions are peaked at high J and the corresponding vibrational distribution favors only even numbered levels. And, 5) The investigation into the energy structure of negative ions yielded a revised Rydberg formula that proved to be a general formula for two-electron systems whose power and precision are equivalent to that of the original Rydberg formula for one-electron systems. Keywords: Ion; Recombination: Reactions: Nascent Population; Distribution; Binding; Negative ions.
