The 488 nm laser-induced reaction of NO2 with CO has been investigated and the results computer-modeled. Two reaction mechanisms were considered:1) the direct reaction of vibronically excited NO2 (NO2 * †) with CO to form CO2, and 2), the reaction of an intermediate NO3 radical formed by the reaction of NO2 * † with NO2 followed by NO3+CO→NO2+CO2. The modeling results strongly support the former as the dominant mechanism.
