To provide understanding of elementary reactions of importance in smog, a three-part investigation has been carried out: (1) experimental determinations of certain elementary reaction rate constants, (2) development of general techniques for estimating elementary reaction rate constants, and (3) estimation of many reactions important in smog. Specific estimated rate constants included the following reactions: (1) Decomposition of alkoxy radicals; (2) Isomerization of alkoxy radicals; (3) Reactions of alkoxy radicals with oxygen; and, (4) The reaction HO2 + NO2 yields HO2NO2. In addition, a limited number of computer simulations were carried out for the photo-oxidation of n-butane and propene.
