Abstract:

A path between NO and HH2O2 is proposed that may be fast enough to satisfy ionospheric requirements at 80 km. The path consists of six steps. The cluster ion NON2 is formed. N2 is replaced by CO2, CO2 is replaced by H2O NOH2O is presumed to undergo an ion-atom Interchange reaction with either OH or HO2 or both to form HH2O The cluster ion HH2ON2 is formed and N2 is replaced by H2O to form HH2O2.
