Dissociative recombination of N2OD+

Author affiliations


Branching ratios and absolute cross sections have been measured for the dissociative recombination of N2OD+ using the CRYRING ion storage ring. The most dominating pathways were found to be those leading to N2 + OD (46%) and the three-body break-up producing N2 + O + D (40%). The production of N2O is not observed. The cross section of the reaction could be fitted to the expression σ = 1.25 ± 0.25 × 10−15(E/eV)−1.24±0.02, which leads to a thermal reaction rate of k(T) = 1.4 ± 0.1 × 10−6(T/300)−0.74±0.02 cm3 s−1. The findings are compared with those of the related dissociative recombination of DOCO+ as well as with earlier flowing afterglow measurements.
