Overview of Plasma Chemistry Lab

This talk will give an overview of recent work at the Plasma Chemistry Laboratory in Albuquerque New Mexico. The talk will start with chemistry relating to ionospheric medication involving chemi-ionization of lanthanide metals. I will then discuss a variety of metal ion reactions related to catalysis and the detailed mechanistic understanding that statistical modeling of temperature dependences can yield. Finally, results from a quantifiable technique to measure ion radical reactions will be shown.
