The fast reaction between C(3P) and C2H2 is thought to be an important process in dense interstellar clouds as it provides a mechanism for the growth of carbon chains. This feature article describes a complementary series of recent experimental and theoretical investigations on this reaction. This includes kinetic measurements of rate constants at low temperatures and crossed molecular beam determinations of integral and differential cross sections. The theory employs first-principles electro...Expand abstract
