Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No! 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!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. 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.
