INTERSTELLAR AND CIRCUMSTELLAR REACTION KINETICS OF Na + , Mg + , AND Al + WITH CYANOPOLYYNES AND POLYYNES
We report calculated rate coefficients for the radiative association reactions of M+ (Na+, Mg+, or Al+) with cyanopolyynes HC2n+1N (n = 0-4) and polyynes HC2nH (n = 1-5), at temperatures relevant to conditions within dense interstellar clouds and the outer envelopes of mass-losing stars. These reaction rate coefficients were determined via variational transition state theory kinetic modeling calculations employing structural, energetic, and spectroscopic parameters obtained from density...[Show more]
