Bending hot molecules

Hot molecules are found in extreme environments such as the edges of fusion reactors. For simulations that e.g. help to understand the physics of planetary atmospheres, it is crucial to know how these molecules react. In a new study researchers reveal a method for controlling the likelihood that reactions between electrons and hot molecules occur, by altering the degree of bending the linear molecules.
