Abstract

The complex organic chemistry involved in comets and planetary atmospheres can be better understood via comparison between observations and results obtained by models. In this paper, we point out some lacks in chemical schemes used in models that can be responsible for the discrepancies between observational and theoretical data. Then, we propose UV studies (coupling experimental and theoretical approaches) to be developed in order to determine fundamental parameters: absorption cross sections, quantum yields and rate constants which will be used to improve models as well as to better analyse and interpret observations.
