Abstract [en]

The equilibrium constant for the formation of an adduct between a carbonyl and a hydroperoxide ion varies linearly with the acid dissociation constant of the hydroperoxide. Based on this relationship, the half-life of the adduct formed between ONOO- and CO2, ONOOC(O)O-, is estimated to be shorter than 100 ns. Consequently, this adduct should not play any role whatsoever in chemical or biological systems. O2NOO- and CO2 are believed to be involved in a fast equilibrium reaction forming an adduct, O2NOOC(O)O-. This adduct does not appear to homolyse either along the O-O or the N-O bond. Furthermore, at realistic CO2 concentrations, the equilibrium should be shifted far to the O2NOO- + CO2 side. Therefore, the rate of self-decomposition of O2NOO- into NO2- and O-2 is unaffected by the presence of bicarbonate.
