Abstract : Further evidence for the formation of excited species in N-atom/O-atom recombination reactions catalyzed by carbon compounds is obtained. Such formation of N2* and/or NO* was previously infered from the enhancement of the NO(+) (chemi-ion) formation rate upon carbon compound addition. The present paper discusses a similar enhancement of NO A(2)Sigma, NO B(2)Pi and O((1)S) formation rate, observed directly by the chemiluminescent light emission from these species. (Author)
