Abstract

The description of atmospheric gas-phase chemistry generally requires a consideration of large sets of elementary chemical reactions. The reactions are elementary in the sense that they cannot or need not be further broken up into sub-processes. Elementary reactions are classified according to the number of atoms or molecules participating in reactive molecular encounters: as bimolecular, when new products arise from the collision of two reactants, and as termolecular when the reaction requires three reactants. In particular, the association of two reactants requires a third collision partner to remove excess energy in order to stabilize the newly formed molecule. In the atmosphere the third partner is primarily nitrogen or oxygen.
