State-to-state approaches are used to shed light on (a) thermodynamic and transport properties of LTE plasmas, (b) atomic and molecular plasmas for aerospace applications and (c)RF sustained parallel plate reactors. The efforts made by the group of Bari in the kinetics and dynamics of electrons and molecular species are discussed from the point of view of either the master equation approach or the molecular dynamics of elementary processes. Recent experimental results are finally rationalized with a state-to-state kinetics based on the coupling of vibrational kinetics with the Boltzmann equation for the electron energy distribution function.
