Issues surrounding the importance of including heterogeneous processes when determining the fate of oxygenated intermediates in the troposphere are discussed. Results of recent investigations are reviewed and preliminary data from a laboratory study are presented. In the laboratory study heterogeneous processes that determine the fate of oxidation products of irradiated o-xylene/NOX/SO2/air mixtures were investigated. The review includes summaries of (1) the effect of oxidant reactions in cloud water on global photochemistry; (2) the impact of N2O5 and NO3 reactions in cloud water on global photochemistry; (3) the effect of sea salt aerosol reactions in cloud water and tropospheric aerosols; and (4) the impact of transition metal catalyzed reactions of HO2 radicals on tropospheric aerosols.
