Review of important reactions for the nitrogen chemistry in the interstellar medium [GA]

Predictions of astrochemical models depend strongly on the reaction rate coefficients used in the simulations. We reviewed a number of key reactions for the chemistry of nitrogen-bearing species in the dense interstellar medium and proposed new reaction rate coefficients for those reactions. The details of the reviews are given in the form of a datasheet associated with each reaction. The new recommended rate coefficients are given with an uncertainty and a temperature range of validity and will be included in KIDA (this http URL).
