Comments:   Measured rate constants for HO2 + NO2 -> HO2NO2. Corrected observed rate constants for secondary reactions. From pressure dependence and assuming fall off parameter Fc=0.6 derived high pressure and low pressure limiting rate expressions. HO2 is produced following 308 nm photolysis of Cl2 via the reactions CH3OH + Cl -> CH2OH + HCl and then CH2OH + O2 -> CH2O + HO2. HO2 is detected in the near-IR at 6638.2 cm-1 usinhg heterodyne absorption with a diode laser. NO2 monitored using UV-visible absorption. In this work it was determined that side reaction NO2 + NO2 <-> appears to influence NO2 under these conditions, and may have impacted the accuracy of prior measurements of the HO2 + NO2 rate constants.
