Abstract : Research on slow ions in gases is described. The research dealt with the measurement of ionic mobilities, diffusion coefficients, and reaction rates. Emphasis was placed on studies of clustering of K(+) ions in N2, H2, He, Ne, Ar, 02, NO, CO, and CO2; on tests of the Wannier diffusion equations; on the differences in behavior of K(+) ions in N2 and CO; and on measurements on ions, formed from CO, drifting in carbon monoxide gas. Improvements in the experimental apparatus and analytical techniques are described. (Modified author abstract)
