An experimental and theoretical investigation of the recombination of iodine atoms in the presence of nitric oxide is described. The work is aimed particularly at the resolution of the anomaly between calculated temperature coefficients and those which were measured by Porter, Szabo and Townsend 1962. Our more detailed calculations lead to a value of -11.45 kcal mole for the reaction of I and NO to yield NOI. A one meter long, high temperature, flash photolysis apparatus was constructed and preliminary measurements using this apparatus, although somewhat higher than the earlier ones, are still much lower than those calculated.
