# The thermodynamics of the elusive HO3 radical.

• Published 2010 in Science

#### Abstract

The role of HO3 as a temporary reservoir of atmospheric OH radicals remains an open question largely because of the considerable uncertainty in the value of the dissociation energy of the HO-O2 bond (D0) or, equivalently, the standard enthalpy of formation of HO3 (Delta(f)H;{\overline{);\circ }}). Using a supersonic flow apparatus, we have observed by… (More)
