Dissociative recombination is a complex molecular process that occurs in any plasma cold enough to contain molecular constituents. It is the dominant recombination process in planetary ionospheres and interstellar clouds. In this analysis, developments in the fields of molecular ion physics, atomic and molecular theory, astrochemistry, aeronomy and plasma physics are discussed.
