    Google is your friend. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=define+dimer Are N and O identical?

    No! im asking whether one NO molecule joins with another one to form a dimer of NO molecules. Not whether and N and O join together to form a dimer!

    Okay. just confused because NO2 also has an odd electron. But it does form a dimer. Also, I read somewhere that NO cannot form a dimer cause of MO theory. But somewhere else i read about the colour of its dimer! Confused! And I did google it. :-P NO satisfactory result though.

    "Nitric oxide dimers (NO)2 are formed when nitric oxide is cooled, liquified, or frozen. In the gas phase dimer the NO monomers are bound by 710 +/- 40 cm^-1" http://www.chem.uregina.ca/~east/ONNOelec.pdf
