. The covalent structure could be O=NN=O or other structural isomer. It is a dimer of nitric oxide (NO).

O=NN=O is the most stable isomer. It is the only isomer that has been experimentally produced.[1] In the solid form the molecules have C2v symmetry. O–N distance is 1.15 Å, N–N distance is 2.33 Å. The molecules are planar, in cis form with ∠ONN of 95°.[2]
