Paper Abstract

Singlet oxygen generators for COIL devices that utilize electrical or microwave discharge excitation are currently being investigated. A unique characteristic of these types of generators is that they deliver relatively high yields of O atoms. Dissociation of I2 will be facilitated by reaction with O atoms. However, a potential complication is that quenching of I* by O may be rapid. In recent studies using discharged oxygen to excite I* it was found that addition of NO2 to the output of the generator improved the yield of I*. In an attempt to understand the mechanism of the enhancement we have investigated the quenching of I* by O(3P) and NO2.
