Charge Transfer

Rates for charge transfer reactions are taken from [Butler Heil and Dalgarno 1980]. For highly charged ions, where accurate calculations do not exist, we scale the rates along isonuclear sequences, assuming that the cross section is proportional to the square of the total residual charge transfer reaction of O II with H ([Field and Steigman 1971]).
