Documentation on six chemical kinetics mechanisms that have been developed to describe photochemical smog formation is provided. The six mechanisms are (1) the Carbon Bond Mechanism III developed by Systems Applications, Inc., (2) the surrogate species mechanism developed by Atkinson, Lloyd and Winges, (3) the LIRAQ mechanism developed by Penner and Walton, (4) the generalized species mechanism developed by McRae and Seinfeld, (5) EPA's Photochemical Box Model mechanism and (6) the chemical mechanism currently used in the Empirical Kinetics Modeling Approach (EKMA). This volume (Part I) contains a description of the mechanisms, including an analysis of the treatment of the basic chemistry, how to specify photolysis rate constants and how to determine initial conditions and reaction rate constants for lumped organic species.
