Progress in Interstellar Molecule Formation
Selected observational, laboratory and theoretical results from the past few years which are significant for delineating interstellar molecule reactions are presented. Molecular species for which reaction mechanisms are considered include OH, NH, CH, and CH+ in diffuse interstellar clouds, and HCO+, N2H+, HCN, HNC, and H2CO in dense clouds.
