Abstract. Ground-level ozone is a secondary pollutant produced photochemically from reactions of NO x with peroxy radicals produced during volatile organic compound (VOC) degradation. Chemical transport models use simplified representations of this complex gas-phase chemistry to predict O 3 levels and inform emission control strategies. Accurate representation of O 3 production chemistry is vital for effective prediction. In this study, VOC degradation chemistry in simplified mechanisms is… CONTINUE READING
