Abstract:

Quantitative measurements have been made of the three-body association rate coefficients for the clustering of hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, carbonyl sulfide, sulfur hexafluoride, nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide, and xenon to the positive nitric oxide ion at 296 K. Selective photoionization of nitric oxide in nitric oxide-hydrogen sulfide, and nitric oxide-sulfur dioxide gas mixtures resulted in the formation of a family of cluster ions. Ion mass spectra are given and interpreted for these two gas mixtures. Rearrangement reactions occur in the nitric oxide-hydrogen sulfide gas mixture to produce protonated hydrogen sulfide positive ions and protonated ammonia positive ions. No rearrangement reactions were observed in the nitric oxide-sulfur dioxide mixture.
