The atmospheric chemistry of cis- and trans-2-hexene-2, 5-dione has been studied. These isomers have been postulated as products of the atmospheric degradation of aromatic hydrocarbons. The photolysis of these isomers and their reaction with OH and O3 were investigated. In addition to determining rate constants for these processes, the products of these reactions were also identified. The atmospheric implications of these results are discussed.
