Abstract

By means of the reaction of atomic H or D (produced either in a microwave discharge or on a W filament) with either NO2 or O3 or atomic O, we have prepared and trapped OH and OD radicals in solid Ar at 12 K, characterized by their infrared absorption lines at 354820 and 261610 m-1, respectively. The reasons for these spectral assignments, and for the rejection of the previously published assignments, are discussed.
