COMMENTS: Photolysis of I2/NO2/N2 mixtures in the wavelength range 500-700 nm (where NO2 photolysis is impossible for energetic reasons) produced INO2 which was identified by comparison with known IR absorption bands

Absolute cross sections could not be determined because a mass balance was not possible

Taking 1% as an upper limit for the loss of NO2 and assuming the stoichiometric formation of INO2, the data are lower limits for the absorption cross sections of the three maxima
