Abstract:

At room temperature, and at a pressure of ammonia of 40 1 mm, the rate of production of N-15N 14 and N2-14 are presented as a function of nitric oxide pressure. There was no evidence for more than a trace of N2-15, while the Nitrous oxide was found to be wholly N2-140. The ratio of nitrous oxide to nitrogen was ob served to vary from 0.21 at 4.0 mm of nitric oxide to 0.27 at 12.5 mm. This may be compared with the values of 0.36 to 0.26 for the same pressure range found by Serewicz and Noyes. Since they observed that a change in the ratio of the products, a better agreement between the relative rates of production of nitrous oxide and nitrogen may not be expected. Author
