“The Astrochemistry of Molecular Anions, From AGB Stars to Dark Clouds”

 

The recent discovery of large molecular anions in space represents an important development in our knowledge of astrochemistry. In my talk, I will briefly review the observational evidence for molecular anions in space and will discuss their important effects on the physics and chemistry of interstellar and circumstellar environments and star-forming regions. I will focus attention on my new chemical model for the AGB star IRC+10216.
