Matrix-isolated hydrazoic acid HN3 admixed with NO was photolyzed by a low-pressure mercury discharge lamp. Product analysis based on the FTIR spectroscopy has revealed the formations of NH, N2O, OH, HNO, and HONO as photoproducts. From the comparisons of the amount of HN3 consumed with that of N2O produced, we conclude that the reaction of NH(1Δ) with NO proceeds mainly through the process NH(1Δ)+NO→N2O+H. The quantum yield of N2O is found to be φ1=0.7±0.1. The conclusion is in line with our previous results of the gas phase experiments at room temperature.
