Data on the low-temperature (< 200 K) dependence of the kinetics of chemical reactions are of great importance for understanding the composition of planetary atmospheres (as well as interstellar clouds). To date such studies have been relatively rare but the situation is beginning to change. During the past 10 years a number of experimental instruments have been designed to address this problem. These instruments rely on either cryogenic or supersonic cooling, and both methods have been applied… CONTINUE READING
