Abstract
The document focuses on photochemical oxidants as they are found in the ambient air. In general, discussions are oriented towards the physical and chemical nature of these oxidants, atmospheric concentrations and measurement of these oxidants, and possible natural sources of ozone. The presence of photochemical oxidants in the ambient air is then considered in relation to (1) effects on vegetation, (2) effects on materials, (3) toxicological studies of effects on animals and man, and (4) epidemiological studies. The scientific literature has been reviewed through January 1969, with additional sources from publications as recent as November 1969. The results and conclusions of foreign investigations have been evaluated for their possible application to the air pollution problem in the United States. The literature has been reviewed thoroughly for information related to the development of criteria, and the document not only summarizes the current scientific knowledge of photochemical air pollution, but also attempts to point up the major deficiencies in that knowledge and the presently recognized needs for further research.
