Abstract:

The relative and absolute intensities of trimethylaluminum TMA, iron pentacarbonyl, lead tetraethyl, and nitrogen oxide upon reaction with atomic oxygen were studied experimentally. The results have shown that the TMA and oxygen reaction created the strongest intensity, followed by NO, FeCO5, and PbC2H54. An attempt was made to produce fluorescence by shining light through the clouds formed by the individual reactions in order to identify the various oxide bands. However, the results were inconclusive. Author
