International Symposium on the Dissociative Recombination of Molecules with Electrons
Theory, Experiment, and Applications

Sponsored by the Division of Physical Chemistry of the American Chemical Society as part of the 222nd ACS National Meeting
August 26-30, 2001 Chicago, Illinois

View Pictures from the Meeting

The symposium will cover all aspects of dissociative recombination, i.e., reactions described by AB+ + e-  -> A + B where e- is an electron, AB+ is a diatomic or polyatomic molecular ion and A and B are the neutral fragmentation products. Dissociative recombination is a

AB+ + e-  ->  AB(RYD)  ->  AB*  ->  A + B
multifaceted process encompassing electron capture, autoionization and fragmentation. The  nuclear motion in the exit channel is similar to that found in photodissociation, unimolecular decomposition and electron attachment to neutrals. The symposium will cover experiment and theory for each of these areas in addition to applications to the earth's ionosphere, the ionospheres of other planets, and the interstellar medium.

The program will consist of invited and contributed talks and a poster session. Both speakers and poster presenters should consult the ACS Handbook for Speakers. All speakers are expected to submit a paper describing the research covered in their presentation.These papers, after peer review, will be collected into a volume to be published by Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers.

The symposium is scheduled for Monday-Thursday and all sessions will take place in room S404A, level 4 of the convention center at McCormick Place South.
