Hydrogen Isocyanide, HNC: A Key Species in the Chemistry of Titans Ionosphere?

Petrie, Simon


HNC is a major product of the dissociative recombination reaction of the important ionospheric ion HCNH+, although to date this neutral has not been identified within Titan's atmosphere, nor considered as a component in ionospheric or photochemical models. We have studied a simple pseudo-steady-state model for the formation and removal of HNC, in which the loss processes considered are HNC protonation by reaction with H-bearing ions; reaction with H atoms, yielding HCN; reaction with CH3...[Show more]
