The possibility of oxidation of nitrogen in an arc discharge under high pressure was investigated. A device consisting of a cylindrical high pressure vessel was equipped with electrode connections and otherwise adapted for the test. Although the experiments were exploratory, the possibility of the oxidation of atmospheric nitrogen in an arc discharge under a pressure up to 3000 atm was proved experimentally and it wasALSO FOUND THAT THE YIELD OF NITROGEN OXIDES INCREASES WITH AN INCREASE IN PRESSURE.
