The atmospheric chemistry of chemical species that may be emitted from fuel conversion facilities were studied in smog chambers. Of 17 compounds assessed for ozone-forming potential, 6 compounds were selected along with a control species, propylene, for testing in the presence of nitrogen oxides in four outdoor smog chambers. Selected compounds were furan, pyrole, thiophene, methanethiol, methyl sulfide, and methyl disulfide. Multiday exposures were performed, and both static and transport conditions were simulated. Ozone and sulfur dioxide formation was examined. The behavior of the test compounds was compared to that of a surrogate urban mix.
