Abstract:

A study is reported of the oxidizing and reducing powers of the products that can be frozen at liquid nitrogen temperature fr m water vapor dissociated by an electrodless discharge. The frozen material exhibits a greater oxidizing and reducing power than does the solution formed after melting of the products. This extra titer does not show a stoichiometric relation to the oxygen evolved upon warming. The ratio of oxidation to reduction equivalents is about 12. It is suggested that the unstable species is either H2O3 or H2O4. Author
