Abstract:

Addition of NO to a stream of partially dissociated N2 in an attempt at gas phase titration of the N atoms resulted in an initial increase in N concentration as measured with the ESR spectrometer. Both O2 and Ar caused increases in the measured N concentration, the O2 being more effective than NO and the Ar less effective. Various possible explanations are discussed. Considerable testing of the validity of certain predictions of a recent theory for modulation broadening of the spectrometer signals is presented for ESR absorption lives of both O atoms and O2 molecule. General agreement of theory and experiment is excellent.
