Abstract:

The report reviews some of the earlier results on the reactions of Na with K with atmospheric ions. Improved sensitivity of the merging beams machine made it possible to distinguish between reactions with ground state and excited state reactants. The bond strength of NaO was found. The rate constant for the reaction Mg O2 to MgO O and for Al O2 to AlO O was found. The reactions of Mg with NO, N2 and CO are also discussed. The exothermic reactions proceed via a stripping mechanism, the endothermic reactions via a rebound mechanism. Author
