Collisional rate coefficients are taken from the litterature and include collisions with: hydrogen (Launay and Roueff 1977), electrons (Johnson et al. 1987), protons (Roueff & Le Bourlot 1990), helium (Staemmler & Flower 1991), and molecular hydrogen (Schröder et al. 1991).
More recent calculations for C-H collisions by Abrahamsson et al (2007) will be provided soon, but the difference with the Launay & Roueff rates is small.
