A theoretical rate constant for the associative detachment reaction Rb((2)S) + OH(-)((1)Σ(+)) → RbOH((1)Σ(+)) + e(-) of 4 × 10(-10) cm(3) s(-1) at 300 K has been calculated. This result agrees with the experimental rate constant of 2-1 (+2)×10(-10)cm(3)s(-1) obtained by Deiglmayr et al. [Phys. Rev. A 86, 043438 (2012)] for a temperature between 200 K and 600 K. A Langevin-based dynamics which depends on the crossing point between the anion (RbOH(-)) and neutral (RbOH) potential energy surfaces…
