The aqueous-phase reactions of O3 with a number of species have been studied in an effort to identify pathways leading to the production of hydrogen peroxide in solution. The aqueous-phase systems studied included the decomposition of O3 in pure water and the interaction of O3 with (1) NO2, (2) PAN, (3) ethylene, (4) formic acid, (5) formaldehyde and (6) formaldehyde in the presence of NO2. Except for the O3-ethylene reaction, peroxide was not found as a reaction product. From the results obtained, it is concluded that the reactions studied in this research effort are not significant with respect to atmospheric peroxide formation.
