Laser induced fluorescence is intensively used for the detection of OH in many atmospheric pressure discharge devices. At this pressure, a quantitative knowledge of the collision phenomena in the upper excited state is critical. Here we report the measurement at T = 300 K of a set of rate constants of electronic quenching and vibrational relaxation of the OH(A2Σ+,v' = 0,1) electronic state, by collision with N2, O2, H2O, CO2, CO, H2, D2, CH4, C2H2, C2H4, C2H6. These are the main gases in applications like plasma medicine, hydrocarbons reforming and CO2 conversion. Available literature data are revisited, and new data are added, mostly relevant to v'= 1 quenching and vibrational relaxation.
