The rate constants for the C6H5 + NO → C6H5NO reaction have been measured with the cavity-ring-down method between 298 and 500 K to be k = 10-11.35±0.06 exp[(+433 ± 111)/T] cm3/s. The effect of pressure was examined at 388 K by sextupling of the total pressure from 20 to 120 Torr, with no significant increase in the measured rate constants within the scatter of the data. This is consistent with the k/k ratio predicted for 388 K using the known literature value of k for the unimolecular decomposition of nitrosobenzene. Our result for C6H5 + NO compares reasonably with the values for other R· + NO association reactions.
