I have a chemistry question that I want to know the answer to. If you have a solution of let's say 75% liquid oxygen and 25% percent liquid nitrogen and expose it to ultrasound to cause cavitation. Will the brief exposure to the high temperatures and pressure of cavition cause the formation of nitric oxide that could react with the LOX to form nitrous oxide? This could be a way a cheaper way of fixing nitrogen without platinum or high electrical discharges. Do you know if anyone would be interested in trying this?
