Recent research has revealed that it is possible to influence the excitation and dissociation of molecules through the manipulation of electron interactions. Since electrons are ubiquitous in nature electron induced reactions initiate and drive the basic physical-chemical processes in many areas of science and technology from industrial plasmas to living tissues. Our ability to control electron interactions therefore provides exciting new opportunities that can be exploited by both the research and technological communities. In this brief review we demonstrate the rapid advances being made in this research fields and explore the need for a detailed database of electron-molecule interactions. We examine the current status of such a database and identify the most important needs in future electron-molecule research.
