Abstract : Two independent experiments have been done that disclose the formation of NO2(+) ions in air in abundances that mark these ions as the principal ones present among atmospheric components. Both of the present studies have been conducted at higher pressures and both indicate a delay in the formation of NO2(+), which may account for the absence of NO2(+) at much lower pressures of air.
