Paper Abstract

Experiments were conducted to determine the chemical fate of four toxic chemicals. The compounds studied were: formaldehyde, acrylonitrile, trichloroethylene, and vinylidene chloride. These chemicals were irradiated in the presence of nitrous acid and oxides of nitrogen in an N2/O2 700 Torr matrix. The nitrous acid serves as a source of OH radicals. Reactant and product concentrations were determined using long path Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The results of these experiments which include OH rate constants and atmospheric chemical mechanisms are discussed.
