N+2 and O+2 potential energy curves have been constructed by combining measured data with the results from electronic structure calculations. These potential curves have been employed to determine accurate charge exchange cross sections, transport cross sections, and collision integrals for ground state N+ –N and O+ –O interactions. The cross sections have been calculated from a semiclassical approximation to the scattering using our computer code that fits a spline curve through the discrete potential data and incorporates the proper long-range behavior of the interaction forces. The charge exchange cross sections are slightly smaller than the values we reported previously using an asymptotic approximation and also agree well with the results of beam measurements at high energies. The collision integrals are tabulated for a broad range of temperatures 250–100 000 K and are intended to reduce the uncertainty in the values of the transport properties of nonequilibrium air, particularly at high temperatures.
