The low-energy capture of a dipolar diatomic molecule in an adiabatically isolated electronic state
with a good quantum number Hund's coupling case a by an ion occurs adiabatically with
respect to rotational transitions of the diatom. However, the capture dynamics may be nonadiabatic
with respect to transitions between the pair of the -doubling states belonging to the same value of
