Negative ions and their identification in laboratory and in interstellar space

Prof. Svatopluk Civiš

Over 150 molecules and ions have been so far identified in the interstellar space. Ions play dominant role in the interstellar chemical reactions. In total 16 cations (CH+, CO+, SO+, HCO+, HCS+, HOC+, N2H+, H3+, H2D+, CH2D+, HCNH+, HOCO+, H3O+, H2COH+, HC3NH+) were found. Chemical reactions in the interstellar space are connected to reactions of cations, and the presence of anions was theoretically predicted. In 2006 their existence was confirmed observationally.
