Abstract : In the presence of CO2, NO(A2 sigma(+)) was produced by irradiation of NO-CO2 mixtures with a cadmium arc. The products monitored with N2, whose yield dropped as the (CO2)/(NO) ratio was enhanced, and CO, whose yield rose with the (CO2)/(NO) ratio to a constant upper limit. Product formation was unaffected by temperature changes (23 to 300 C) or by the addition of xenon or NO2. Carbon dioxide is about 3.4 times more efficient than NO in the competition.
