# Existence of Hyponitrite Molecule

Does the hyponitrite molecule exist? I know the hyponitrite ion exists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyponitrite) but what about the molecule?

I have found no reference to the molecular form on Wikipedia. But it does seem that such a molecule could at least come together through the dimerization of nitric oxide.

• Apparently, $\ce{NO}$ does indeed dimerize at low temperature. Plenty of references come up in a search, and this is mentioned on the Wikipedia page for nitric oxide. – Greg E. Jun 11 '14 at 18:25
