Matrix isolation Fourier transform infrared study of the products of the reaction between ClO and NO2

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Matrix isolation FTIR and UV absorption spectroscopy have been used to study the products of the reaction between ClO and NO2, a reaction of importance in the stratosphere. The technique allows both quantitative measurements of the major reactants and products and a simultaneous direct search for any minor products. The yield of chlorine nitrate formation from the reaction channel ClO + NO2 + M → ClONO2 + M (M = N2) was found to be 0.93 ± 0.2 at 22 torr and 253-298 K, and no evidence was found for any other products of the reaction, including isomers. © 1985 American Chemical Society.
