A series of atmospheric simulation experiments was conducted to examine the role of urban photochemical processes on the formation and removal of potentially hazardous air pollutants. The chemicals examined included ubiquitous urban pollutants (e.g., propylene, toluene and acetaldehyde), a potentially hazardous chlorinated solvent (allyl chloride), and complex mixtures (wood smoke and auto exhaust) from common urban pollutant sources. In all cases, the irradiated products were more mutagenic than the original chemicals.
