Kinetics of vibrationally-excited singlet oxygen O2(a1Δ,ν) in gas mixture O3/N2/CO2 was studied using a pulse laser technique. Molecules O2(a1Δ,ν) were produced by laser photolysis of ozone at 266 nm. The O3 molecules number density was followed using time-resolved absorption spectroscopy. It was found that an upper bound for the rate constant of chemical reaction O2(a1Δ,ν)+ O3 is about 10-15 cm3/s. The rate constants of O2(a1Δ,ν= 1, 2 and 3) quenching by CO2 are presented.
