Abstract:

The decomposition of nitric oxide between 2250 and 3450 deg K has been studied in shock tube experiments. The emitted infrared radiation of the fundamental band system of NO has been used to determine the time duration of the slow decomposition regime of NO behind shock waves in pure NO. It is found that the temperature dependency of the duration is in good agreement with the theoretical model we have described previously.
