Conservation of oxygen isotopes: The isotopic composition of the starting ozone (in terms of ) is compared to the products after reaction (1) [ O, whose isotopic composition is calculated using the isotopic composition of corrected for the isotopic composition of the initial NO using Eq. (4)].

Relationship between and extracted from the two available models of intramolecular triple isotope distribution in ozone. The red dashed line and blue solid line correspond to the Bhattacharya et al. (Ref. 34) and Liang et al. (Ref. 33) models, respectively.

FIG. 6.

Plot of as a function of for the Bhattacharya et al. (Ref. 34) and Liang et al. (Ref. 33) models. The function is a metric of the difference between the model and the observation. The minimum of the function gives the value of corresponding to the best agreement between observation and model. Both models give the same value, 0.082, which implies that about 8% of the oxygen atoms in ozone abstracted by NO come from the central position.

Evolution of the and the (1)/ reaction rates ratio as a function of time simulated by the IBM chemical kinetic simulator under the conditions of our experimental setup. The simulation demonstrates that under our conditions is the only nitrogen oxide product, generated solely by reaction (1).

Tables

Generic image for table
Table I.

Isotopic composition of standard NO and determined using Tesla discharge by different operators at different times. Standard deviations and number of analyses are also given.

Generic image for table
Table II.

Experimental conditions used to study the reaction. Given are the thermodynamical conditions used to form by electrical discharge, the initial and final total pressure in the reaction chamber, and the amounts of reactants introduced and yield of products recovered. Only a qualitative indication is given for the temperature of ozone formation because of the large uncertainty pertaining to the temperature of the discharge zone.
