Abstract A photochemical reaction mechanism has been updated and extensively evaluated. The testing and refinement of the surrogate species mechanism was performed in order to create an improved chemical mechanism for the atmospheric simulation models that are used to develop ozone control strategies. The updated mechanism was tested against 400 smog chamber experiments carried out in four different chambers. Tests were performed to assess the accuracy of the chamber characterization procedures, of reactions for single organic compounds, and of the overall mechanism for complex organic mixtures, including mixtures obtained from automobile exhaust. The results indicate that the mechanism's predictions are generally consistent with the experimental data. Volume II contains the results of the model simulations of the environmental chamber experiments and a summary and conclusion section that includes a discussion of work to be carried out in the future to adapt this mechanism for use in atmospheric modeling.
