PREFACE This report describes work carried out at the University of California under funding from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) through contract number A032-096, the Coordinating Research Council, Inc. (CRC) through project number ME-9, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) through contract ZF-2-12252, and the California South Coast(More)
A detailed atmospheric photochemical mechanism for the atmospheric reactions of isoprene its major oxidation products in the presence of NO x , which incorporates the most recent laboratory results and our current understanding of the system, is described. It is evaluated by comparing its predictions against results of NO x-air irradiations of isoprene and(More)
Environmental chamber experiments and computer model calculations were conducted to assess the atmospheric ozone formation potentials of 1-propyl and 1-butyl bromides. The experiments consisted of blacklight irradiations, in a dual ~5000-liter chamber, of simulated photochemical smog mixtures with and without propyl or butyl bromide added. They employed two(More)
A series of indoor environmental chamber experiments were conducted to fill gaps in the data base needed for evaluation of gas-phase photochemical mechanisms for assessing the effects of emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) on ambient air quality. Two large dual-mode indoor Teflon bag chambers, one irradiated by blacklights and the other by xenon(More)
PREFACE The report describes work carried out at the Statewide Air Pollution Research Center (SAPRC) at the University of California at Riverside under funding from six different contracts or agreements. The major funding for this work, covering the preparation of this report and most of the experiments carried out in 1991 and 1992, was provided jointly by(More)
