    Abstract

    We review earlier cross section data sets for electron-collisions with H 2, O 2, CO, CO 2, H 2O and N2O, updated here by experimental results for their electronic states. Based on our recent measurements of differential cross sections for the electronic states of those molecules, integral cross sections (ICSs) are derived by applying a generalized oscillator strength analysis and then assessed against theory (BEf-scaling [Y.-K. Kim, J. Chem. Phys. 126, 064305 (2007)]). As they now represent benchmark electronic state cross sections, those ICSs for the above molecules are added into the original cross section sets taken from the data reviews for H2, O2, CO2 and H2O (the Itikawa group), and for CO and N2O (the Zecca group).
