Abstract:

As a review of the literature demonstrates, markedly fewer investigations of the reactions of negative ions have been reported than for positive ions. A sampling of recent work is presented, which illustrates some of the many interesting features of negative-ion processes. These processes have important consequences in certain regions of the upper atmosphere. Negative-ion reactions also have broad significance for lasers, discharges, and a variety of other energetic media. The results to be discussed here will be restricted to the low energy regime less than 100eV, and will be mainly concerned with bimolecular reactions.
