On the production of N2O from the reaction of O/1D/with N2.Ozone was photolyzed at 2537 A and at 25 C in the presence of 42-115 torr of O2 and about 880 torr of N2 to test the relative importance of the two reactions O(1D) + N2 + M leading to N2O + M and O(1D) + N2 leading to O(3P) + N2. In this study N2O was not found as a product. Thus from our detectability limit for N2O an upper limit to the efficiency of the first reaction relative to the second of 2.5 times 10 to the -6 power at 1000-torr total pressure was computed.
