Nitric oxide

Other Names

Nitric oxide, NO, Nitrogen monoxide


Nitric oxide (NO), a colorless gas, is produced near the surface either by fuel combustion or due to natural emissions.
Nitric oxide converts to Nitrogen dioxide fairly readily in the atmosphere, resulting in catalytic cycles leading to ozone formation in the troposphere and ozone loss in the stratosphere.
