The product formation channels of ground state carbon atoms, C(3P), reacting with ammonia, NH3, have been investigated using two complementary experiments and electronic structure calculations. Reaction products are detected in a gas flow tube experiment (330 K, 4 Torr) using tunable vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) photoionization coupled with time of flight mass spectrometry. Temporal profiles of the species formed and photoionization spectra are used to identify primary products of the C + NH3… 
Kinetic and Product Study of the Reactions of C(1D) with CH4 and C2H6 at Low Temperature.
TLDR
The H-atom product yields of the C(1D) + CH4 reaction agree with the results of earlier crossed-beam experiments at higher collision energy, and comparison with earlier work involving the same singlet C3H6 potential energy surface allows conclusions to be drawn.
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

TLDR
The gas-phase reaction between atomic carbon in its first electronically excited 1D state and water has been studied over the 50-296 K temperature range using a supersonic flow apparatus and results are discussed in the context of earlier work on the C(1D)/C(3P) + H2O reactions.
A low temperature investigation of the N(2D) + CH4, C2H6 and C3H8 reactions.
TLDR
The gas-phase reactions between metastable nitrogen atoms, N(2D) and saturated hydrocarbons CH4, C2H6 and C3H8 have been investigated using a supersonic flow reactor over the 296-75 K temperature range and the rate constants decrease as the temperature falls, indicating the presence of activation barriers for these processes.
Kinetics of the Gas-Phase O(1D) + CO2 and C(1D) + CO2 Reactions over the 50-296 K Range.
TLDR
Both reactions display rate constants that increase as the temperature falls, with a more substantial rate increase observed for the O(1D) + CO2 reaction, which could be due to the increasing lifetimes of the intermediate species involved at lower temperatures.
Reactions of Atomic Carbon with Butene Isomers: Implications for Molecular Growth in Carbon-Rich Environments.
TLDR
The experimental results are compared to previous H atom branching ratios and used to propose the most likely mechanisms for the reaction of ground state carbon atoms with butene isomers.
Experimental and theoretical studies of the N(2D) + H2 and D2 reactions.
TLDR
Two different approaches were used to calculate rate constants for these reactions; a statistical quantum mechanical (SQM) method and a quasi- classical trajectory capture model including a semi-classical correction for tunneling (SC-Capture).
Valence shell threshold photoelectron spectroscopy of C3Hx (x = 0-3).
TLDR
The obtained results complement not only existing ones, but for the first time the photoelectron spectra of C3, cyclic and linear C3H (c,l-C3H) as well as of the excited states of C 3H3 are reported.

TLDR
This coupled theory and experiment study demonstrates the utility of NH2OH as a high temperature source of OH radicals and the rate coefficients obtained here should be of utility in modeling NOx in various combustion environments.
