Ab initio molecular dynamic (MD) simulations were performed for investigating collision reaction between NH4+(NH3)2 trimer and ND3 monomer. Collision cross-section with the use of three criteria was obtained for the collision energy of 0.1-1.0 eV. The MD simulation showed that the reaction followed by the collision is closely connected with the degree of contact in the first collision.
