A pollutant that causes smog and acid rain, as well as eye, throat, and lung irritation. Nitrogen dioxide (chemical symbol NO2) is mainly produced by burning fossil fuels (e.g., emissions from burning gasoline in a car).
CAS Number: 10102-44-0. A toxic, reddish-brown gas that is a strong oxidizing agent. It is produced by combustion (as of fossil fuels), and is an atmospheric pollutant. Chemical formula = NO2. Molecular weight = 46.0055 g/mol.
A major component of photochemical smog, produced by oxygen combining with nitric acid from vehicle emissions in the atmosphere.
A highly reactive oxidant and very toxic gas. It can cause irritation to the eyes, nose, and throat, as well as respiratory damage. Nitrogen dioxide is generated from combustion activities, such as unvented gas stoves and heaters, and environmental tobacco smoke.
is colorless, odorless gas that can be released by burning fuels and by smoking tobacco products.
a highly poisonous brown gas (NO2)
A compound of nitrogen and oxygen. NO2 is a major contributor to photochemical smog and acid rain, and is irritating to the eyes, respiratory system and skin. It can be removed from the exhaust gas by SCR, such as that found in the SCRT® system.
a greenhouse gas released from the combustion of fossil fuels.
An intermediate chemical ingredient in the processes leading to the formation of nitric acid. Introduction Task Process Information resources Guidance Dr. Bravo Ms. Alarcón Dr. Sosa Dr. Soto Mr. Sanchez
The result of nitric oxide combining with oxygen in the atmosphere; major component of photochemical smog.
Nitrogen dioxide is a light brown gas that is present in all urban atmospheres. It can irritate lungs, cause bronchitis and pneumonia, and lower resistance to respiratory infections. It also is a critical compound in the chemistry of ozone formation and acid precipitation. In addition, high concentrations of nitrogen dioxide may damage vegetation; atmospheric deposition of nitrogen dioxide can lead to destructive algae blooms in aquatic ecosystems. Common sources of nitrogen dioxide include the combustion of fuels by utilities, industrial boilers, and car and truck engines.
A chemical that results from nitric oxide combining with oxygen in the atmosphere; a major component of photochemical smog.
One of a group of gases called nitrogen oxides, which are composed of nitrogen and oxygen. Like sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides can react with other chemicals in the atmosphere in the presence of sunlight to form acidic pollutants, including nitric acid.
a gas (NO2) consisting of one nitrogen and two oxygen atoms. It absorbs blue light and therefore has a reddish-brown color associated with it.
Gas consisting of one nitrogen atom and two oxygen atoms. Nitrogen dioxide absorbs blue light and therefore appears reddish or brown to the human eye. Nitrogen dioxide gives the Phoenix Brown Cloud its color. Most emissions come from combustion of fuels in mobile and stationary sources.
A brown gas, formula NO2, found at all levels in the atmosphere. In the troposphere it photodissociates to give free oxygen atoms, which then form ozone, and is thus a key player in local and regional air pollution events. In the stratosphere it participates in catalytic ozone destruction cycles, but also forms stable nitrate reservoir species that ameliorate ozone loss.
This compound of nitrogen and oxygen is formed by the oxidation of nitric oxide (NO) which is produced by the combustion of solid fuels.
