The Chemistry of HO{Sub 2}NO{Sub 2} and the Photochemistry of the HO{Sub X}-NO{Sub X}-CO{Sub X} System

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objectives of this work were: (1) to investigate formation and destruction reactions of peroxynitric acid, HO{sub 2}NO{sub 2} and (2) to study the photochemistry and kinetics of the HO{sub x} - NO{sub x} - CO{sub x} system were also studied. Investigations were done using infrared spectroscopy to observe the behavior of species involved with the reactions of interest. Several techniques were used, including expansion of reactants into an evacuated cell, static cell decays under constant illumination, and periodic photolysis of flow systems, Infrared absorption cross sections were obtained for CO, CO{sub 2}, NO, NO{sub 2}, N{sub 2}O{sub 5}, HNO{sub ... continued below

The spectroscopic measurements were used to derive kinetic information on the systems under study,
