Yung et al. (2004) suggested that N2O exchanges isotopes with O(1 D), analogous to CO2, which would represent an additional contribution to the 17O isotope anomaly of atmospheric N2O. Here we demonstrate by isotope measurements of N2O remaining after partial conversion with O(1 D) that this isotope exchange most likely proceeds at
