Abstract:

Reaction rate coefficients for negative ions in carbon dioxide have been investigated in a drift tube by analysis of time-of-arrival spectra. Collisional detachment of electrons, clustering of the negative atomic oxygen ion to carbon dioxide, collisional dissociation of the carbon trioxide ion, and electron dissociative attachment have been studied at low pressure and over an order of magnitude range of the ratio of electric field to neutral number density EN, starting slightly above thermal. Changes of gas temperature have been shown to act to shift the reaction equilibrium in the same sense that changes in EN do. Author
