The rate constant for the reaction N++NO was measured for center-of-mass collision energies from thermal to 2.5 eV. The measurements were made in a flow-drift tube apparatus in which the N+ ions were made by secondary reactions in the flow tube or were injected into the flow tube from a separate source. The measured rates were found to be in good agreement with previous room-temperature measurements and with crossed beam data at 2.5 eV. An unexplained disagreement exists between the present results and the crossed beam data below 2.5 eV.
