Mechanisms that describe the formation of photochemical smog are developed using a computer modeling technique directed toward the simulation of data collected in two smog chambers: an indoor chamber and a dual outdoor chamber. The results of simulating 164 different experiments are presented in Vol. 1. Individual compounds for which specific experiments were simulated and mechanisms developed include the following: formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, ethylene, propylene, butane, and toluene. Experiments in both chambers were simulated for all these compounds. The mechanisms reported describe the decay of the precursor organic compound, formation and decay of secondary organic compounds, conversion of nitrogen oxides, formation of nitrates, and the appearance and decay of ozone. Special emphasis is given to the chemistry of toluene. Also included is a study of a generalized smog-based or carbon-bond mechanism developed in a previous study.
