A KInetic Database for Astrochemistry (KIDA)

We present a novel chemical database for gas-phase astrochemistry. Named the KInetic Database for Astrochemistry (KIDA), this database consists of gas-phase reactions with rate coefficients and uncertainties that will be vetted to the greatest extent possible. Submissions of measured and calculated rate coefficients are welcome, and will be studied by experts before inclusion into the database. Besides providing kinetic information for the interstellar medium, KIDA is planned to contain such data for planetary atmospheres and for circumstellar envelopes. Each year, a subset of the reactions in the database (kida.uva) will be provided as a network for the simulation of the chemistry of dense interstellar clouds with temperatures between 10 K and 300 K. We also provide a code, named Nahoon, to study the time-dependent gas-phase chemistry of 0D and 1D interstellar sources.

large databases with thousands of reaction rate coef?cients, such as KIDA (Wakelam et al. 2012), OSU (Prasad & Huntress 1980), or UDfA (Woodall et al. 2007; McElroy? et al. 2013), exist for gas-phase ISM chemistry. T
