We present calculations of time behavior of the H2O concentration in reaction between the ozone and molecular hydrogen in a three-component mixture with nitrogen as a buffer gas. It is shown that at the reaction constant equal to 3x1013x exp(-3000/T) cm3/(mol×s) and proportion of partial pressures in the three-component mixture H23:N2 = 1:1:10000 at the total pressure being 1 atm, the reaction time increases to 1.5 s and the yield of H2O molecules reaches 2×1015 cm-3. We propose to use the isotopic ozone molecule18O3 in the experiment. This would allow a reliable recording of H218O to be performed with any spectrometer having sensitivity no less than 10-6 cm-1.
