In considering the reactions which may occur, extensive data has been available on $NO_{2}^{=}$, $NO_{2}^{-}$, and $NO_{2}$. Very little information has been published on the chemically reactive $NO_{2}^{=}$ species. The infrared spectrum of $NO_{2}^{+}$ has been studied in the solid compound $NO^{2}$$BF_{4} and in alkali halide solid solutions. The fundamental assignments in NO_{2}$$BF_{4}$ are $\nu_1$ = 1043 cm$^{-1}$ (Raman), $\nu_{2}$ = 593 cm$^{-1}$ (I.R.), $\nu_{3}$ 2382 cm$^{-1}$ (I.R.). $\nu_{2}$ had not been observed previously, while $\nu_{3}$ had been misassigned. The chemical reactivity of $NO_{2}^+$ is so great that it is difficult to prepare, and to maintain, at high purity. The $NO_{2}$$BF_{4} was found to contain appreciable quantities of NO^{+}, and the spectra were separated by controlled thermal decomposition of the NO_{2}$$BF_{4}$. The frequencies observed for $NO^{+}$ are 2337 cm$^{-1}$ (I.R.) and 2343 cm$^{-1}$ (Raman), both in $NO_{2}$$BF_{4}$. In the isolation of $NO_{2}^+$ and $NO^{+}$ in alkali halide matrices, quantities of NOX and $NO_{2}$X were produced (X = halogen), as wel as other reaction products which have not been fully identified. en_US dc.format.extent 167440 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title VIBRATIONAL SPECTRA OF $NO^{+}$ AND $NO_{2}^{+}$ en_US dc.type article en_US
