 A huge array of small molecules arising from gas-phase reactions of highly reactive radicals have been discovered and studied in the context of atmospheric/​astrochemistry. A number of these small molecules such as nitric oxide (NO), nitroxyl (HNO), nitrosothiol (HSNO) are also highly relevant as bio-messengers. However, many of such small molecules are yet to be discovered. ​ A huge array of small molecules arising from gas-phase reactions of highly reactive radicals have been discovered and studied in the context of atmospheric/​astrochemistry.

 For example, high-level ab initio electronic structure calculations of a previously unknown product of HO• and •NO, i.e. HO-ON, showed that it could exist as a stable molecule despite its remarkably long O–O bond (1.9 Å). This theoretical prediction was verified through an experimental collaboration [Science, 2013, 342, 1354]. ​ For example, high-level ab initio electronic structure calculations of a previously unknown product of HO• and •NO, i.e. HO-ON, showed that it could exist as a stable molecule despite its remarkably long O–O bond (1.9 Å).
