Description

A leading cause of polluted air in urban atmospheres is the interaction of sunlight with an air mixture containing nitrogen oxides and reactive hydrocarbons. Several classes of hydrocarbons are highly reactive hydrocarbons; one is the alkenes, the subject of "The Mechanisms of the Atmospheric Oxidation of the Alkenes" (Calvert, et al., OUP, 2000). This book, the second in a series of comprehensive studies of these compounds, will review and evaluate existing literature on the mechanisms of the aromatic hydrocarbons, which have a particularly high potential for ozone generation. The focus of the text will be on problem solving and clarifying uncertain aspects of the chemistry of these compounds.show more

Review quote

"Seven members of the Coordinating Research Council's Review Panel on the Atmospheric Chemistry of the Hydrocarbons submit their technical report of research supported by a number of government agencies and industrial groups. They consider the importance of aromatic hydrocarbons in the chemistry of ozone generation in the urban atmosphere, reactions of aromatic compounds with OH radicals, reactions of ozone with aromatic compounds, primary photochemical processes of the hydrocarbons and some of their common oxidation products, applications to modeling atmospheric chemistry, areas for further study, and other topics."--SciTech Book Newsshow more
