Electron- molecule collisions occur in a wide variety of contexts. The essential ingredients are physical conditions that permit the presence of molecules - which have dissociation energies on the order of a few electron volts or eV (1 eV = 11,600 K) - and that simultaneously permit the presence of free electrons. If these electrons are produced by ionization of neutral matter, their generation requires on the order of 5-15 eV of energy, enough to dissociate most molecules. Thus systems in which electron- molecule collisions are important are generally far from thermal equilibrium.
