Description

The formation of smog in urban atmospheres involves the interaction of sunlight with an air mixture containing nitrogen oxides and reactive hydrocarbons - the most reactive class of these hydrocarbons being alkenes. This text, by a team of leading atmospheric chemists, reviews and evaluates the existing literature on the atmospheric chemistry of these compounds, focusing on the search for a more quantitative understanding of the phenomenon which can then be applied to control methods. It includes examinations of the reactions of alkenes and even suggests areas for further laboratory studies.show more

Review quote

"The main chapters. . .are extremely valuable to the specialists working in the filed of atmospheric photochemistry and related modeling, for reaction kineticists as well as modelers studying city plumes to the effect of biogenic emissions. For these the thoroughly and comprehensively proficient review on the mechanisms of atmospheric oxidation of the alkenes is highly recommended."--Bulletin of the American Meteorological Societyshow more
