Abstract:

The range of applicability of a statistical theory of ion-molecule reaction rates is determined. The theory is then applied to several hypothetical reactions to demonstrate effects of properties of the products on reaction rates. Cross sections and rates for O N2 to NO N and N O2 to NO O or N O2 are calculated and compared with experiment. It is concluded that the best use of the theory is for calculation of branching ratios.
