Molecules, Vol. 26, Pages 7152: Vibrational Energy Transfer in CO+N2 Collisions: A Database for V–V and V–T/R Quantum-Classical Rate Coefficients (Molecules)
 


Knowledge of energy exchange rate constants in inelastic collisions is critically required for accurate characterization and simulation of several processes in gaseous environments, including planetary atmospheres, plasma, combustion, etc. Determination of these rate constants requires accurate potential energy surfaces (PESs) that describe in detail the full interaction region space and the use of collision dynamics methods capable of including the most relevant quantum effects. In this work, we produce an extensive collection of vibration-to-vibration (V–V) and vibration-to-translation/rotation (V–T/R) energy transfer rate coefficients for collisions between CO and N2 molecules using a mixed quantum-classical method and a recently introduced (A. Lombardi, F. Pirani, M. Bartolomei, C. Coletti, and A. Laganà, Frontiers in chemistry, 7, 309 (2019)) analytical PES, critically revised to improve its performance against ab initio and experimental data of different sources. The present database gives a good agreement with available experimental values of V–V rate coefficients and covers an unprecedented number of transitions and a wide range of temperatures. Furthermore, this is the first database of V–T/R rate coefficients for the title collisions. These processes are shown to often be the most probable ones at high temperatures and/or for highly excited molecules, such conditions being relevant in the modeling of hypersonic flows, plasma, and aerospace applications.
