The vibronic network model is here considered for excited sodium atoms and oxygen molecules collisions. Electronic to vibration transfer and reaction cross sections are computed with a single adjustable parameter : the ionic covalent matrix element. The comparison between the atom-molecule and the quasi-free electron models is presented.
