Abstract A fundamental collisional process at elevated energies is the dissociation of a molecule into two or more fragments via a collision with a third body. This so called collision-induced dissociation (CID) has been observed extensively in ion-molecule reactions and, in more recent years, between neutral species. CID of the alkali and thallium halides to ion pairs has been studied for the last few years, and the threshold behavior for the process has been determined. Typical reactions observed are M + CsCl ..-->.. M + Cs/sup +/ + Cl/sup -/ ..-->.. CsM/sup +/ + Cl/sup -/ for the monomer, and M + Cs/sub 2/Cl/sub 2/ ..-->.. M + Cs/sub 2/Cl/sup +/ + Cl/sup -/ ..-->.. M + Cs/sup +/ + CsCl/sub 2//sup -/ for the dimer.
