Contents Notes
An experimental protocol has been developed to determine the gas-phase rate constants for the reactions of the hydroxyl (OH) radical with chemicals at room temperature. This protocol provides a basis for evaluating the relative importance of one atmospheric reaction pathway (i.e., attack by the OH radical) for organic substances that may be emitted into the environment. The experimental technique is based on monitoring the disappearance rates of the test compound and a reference organic in irradiated methyl nitrite- NO-organic-air mixtures. (The reference is an organic species whose OH radical reaction rate constant is accurately known.)
