Predictions of astrochemical models depend strongly on the reaction rate coefficients used in the simulations. We reviewed a number of key reactions for the chemistry of nitrogen-bearing species in the dense interstellar medium and proposed new reaction rate coefficients for those reactions. The details of the reviews are given in the form of a datasheet associated with each reaction. The new recommended rate coefficients are given with an uncertainty and a temperature range of validity and…

Revised Models of Interstellar Nitrogen Isotopic Fractionation

Nitrogen-bearing molecules in cold molecular clouds exhibit a range of isotopic fractionation ratios and these molecules may be the precursors of 15N enrichments found in comets and meteorites.

THE C(3P) + NH3 REACTION IN INTERSTELLAR CHEMISTRY. II. LOW TEMPERATURE RATE CONSTANTS AND MODELING OF NH, NH2, AND NH3 ABUNDANCES IN DENSE INTERSTELLAR CLOUDS

A continuous supersonic flow reactor has been used to measure rate constants for the C(3P) + NH3 reaction over the temperature range 50–296 K. C(3P) atoms were created by the pulsed laser photolysis

Ionization fraction and the enhanced sulfur chemistry in Barnard 1.

Barnard B1b presents similar depletions of C and O than those measured in pre-stellar cores, and it is proposed that it is the consequence of the initial conditions and a rapid collapse that permits to maintain most S- and N-bearing species in gas phase to great optical depths.

Modelling complex organic molecules in dense regions: Eley–Rideal and complex induced reaction

Recent observations have revealed the existence of Complex Organic Molecules (COMs) in cold dense cores and prestellar cores. The presence of these molecules in such cold conditions is not well

Tracing the atomic nitrogen abundance in star-forming regions with ammonia deuteration

Partitioning of elemental nitrogen in star-forming regions is not well constrained. Most nitrogen is expected to be partitioned among atomic nitrogen (N I), molecular nitrogen (N 2 ), and icy

Modelling mid-infrared molecular emission lines from T Tauri stars

We introduce a new modelling framework including the Fast Line Tracer (FLITS) to simulate infrared line emission spectra from protoplanetary discs. This paper focusses on the mid-IR spectral region

Chimie à la surface des grains dans les disques protoplanetaires

La formation des planetes a lieu dans les disques protoplanetaires constitues de gaz et de poussieres. Si ces dernieres ne representent que 1% de la masse totale du disque, elles jouent un role
