Major advances have been made in the measurement and analysis of gas phase ionic organic reactions. The dynamics can be interpreted in terms of statistical reaction rate theory. The activation parameters and rates have been interpreted in terms of Marcus theory. Infrared multiple photon absorption has been used to activate ions which may be intermediates in these ion-molecule reactions. The results provide information about bimolecular dynamics.
