5 19 Chemical Reactions: Thermodynamics and Kinetics [1, Chaps. 2, 3, 21, and 22; 2, Chaps. 3, 4, 6, and 9; 22] Chemical models of the interstellar medium (see Chap. 4) contain ca. 4,500 gasphase reactions. The vast majority of these are bimolecular reactions; that is, they occur as the result of binary collisions between, for example, an ion and a neutral species, two neutral species, and ions or molecules with electrons. The rate of such elementary processes, expressed in terms of the change in concentration with time (t) of the reactant or product species, is proportional to the product of the concentrations of the two reactants.

Gerin of the visible matter. This includes the complex cooling and heating effects of neutral and molecular gas, the action of magnetic fields on the large scale flows of matter, as well as the important dynamical and radiative feedback effects created by newly formed stars. Indeed as soon as a first generation of stars had been formed, the so-called Population III stars, the interstellar medium became enriched in heavy elements (compared to the initial composition resulting from the primordial nucleosynthesis shortly after the Big Bang), leading to more possibilities for cooling and heating the gas, and an easier synthesis of molecules.
