Abstract

Far‐infrared rotational transitions in ClO(X23/2, υ = 0) have been observed using laser magnetic resonance (LMR) with an optically pumped spectrometer. Five observed transitions at wavelengths between 444 and 713 µm have been compared with values predicted with spectroscopic constants from the literature. LMR detection of ClO has been used to study its reactions with NO and NO2 in a discharge flow system under pseudo‐first‐order conditions for ClO. The measured rate constants are k(ClO + NO) = (7.1 ± 1.4) × 10−12 exp[(270 ± 50)/T] cm3/molec·s for the temperature range of 202 < T < 393 K; k(ClO + NO2 + M) = (2.8 ± 0.6) × 10−33 exp[(1090 ± 80)/T] cm6/molec2·s (M = He, 250 < T < 387 K), (3.5 ± 0.6) × 10−33 exp[(1180 ± 80)/T] (M = O2, 250 < T < 416 K), and (2.09 ± 0.3) × 10−31 (M = N2, T = 297 K). All measurements were made at low pressures, between 0.6 and 6.6 torr. These results are compared with those from other studies.
