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. Individual compounds for which specific experiments were simulated and mechanisms developed include the following: formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, ethylene, propylene, butane, and toluene. Volume 2 contains the user's manual and coding for a chemical kinetics computer program, CHEMK.
