Mixtures of cyanogen, oxygen and nitrous oxide diluted in argon were shock-heated to measure the rate constant of NCO O yields CO NO. In this study, a novel laser absorption diagnostic was used to probe NCO time-histories in high temperature shock tube experiments aimed at determining rate constants for important NCO formation and removal reactions. Mixtures of C2N2, N20 and O2 diluted in argon were shock-heated to determine the rate constant of reaction 3 at 1450 K.
