Abstract : Stationary afterglow techniques were employed to determine reaction rate constants for ions reacting in NO-H2O gas mixtures. Krypton resonance radiation at 123.6 and 116.5 nm is used to ionize only the NO molecules. The NO(+) ion is the precursor to a chain of reactions which result in NO(+).nNO (n=1,2), NO(+).nH2O (n=1,2,3), and H3O(+).nH2O (n=2,3,4) being formed. Rate constants and/or equilibrium constants are provided for all forward and all reverse reactions at 296 K. (Author)
