Does anyone know the term for when 4 molecules are required to collide? In other words, what comes after termolecular?

A guess, but I would assume tetramolecular.

Yes I think a reaction that involves four molecules colliding simultaneously would be called a tetramolecular reaction. Given that termolecular reactions are uncommon due to three molecules having to collide simultaneously, tetramolecular reactions would be very rare.
