Energy-transfer reaction from metastable CO(a~3П) molecule to CN radical has been studied in a room-temperature flow reactor. The CN (B-X, △v=0, ±1, ±2) violet emission bands were obtained. The △v=0 sequence of CN(B) were analyzed by computer simulation. The vibrational temperature is 3400 K. By using the reference reaction CO(a)+NO, the formation rate constant of CN(B) has been measured, k_(CN)(B)=1.1×10~(-11) cm~3·molecule~(-1)·s~(-1).

Key words: Metastable CO(a) molecule, CN radical, Energy transfer
