The products of the reaction of OClO with NO_3 were investigated between 220 and 298 K using a flow reactor and infrared, visible, and ultraviolet analysis. At temperatures below 250 K new infrared and ultraviolet absorption features were observed and assigned to the novel compound chloryl nitrate (O_2ClONO_2). Additionally, ClO and NO_2 were observed as reaction products, indicating the existence of a second reaction channel. O_2ClONO_2 formation predominates at temperatures below 230 K. The reaction rate constant at 220 K is estimated to be on the order of 10^(-14) cm^3 molecule^(-1) s^(-1) in 1-5 Torr of helium. These observations suggest that O_2ClONO_2 may exist in the terrestrial stratosphere.
