Nitric oxide is produced by reacting aqueous nitric acid with gaseous sulfur dioxide in a gas-liquid contact reactor. The reaction is conducted in the presence of a stoichiometric excess of nitric acid to minimize the production of byproduct nitrous oxide and nitrogen. The nitric oxide product gas is chilled sufficiently to freeze most of the water and byproduct nitrogen dioxide contained in the nitric oxide product gas.
