Absorption spectra and aqueous photochemistry of β-hydroxyalkyl nitrates of atmospheric interest


Molar absorption coefficients were measured for select alkyl nitrates and β-hydroxyalkyl nitrates in methanol. The presence of the β-hydroxyl group has a relatively minor effect on the absorption spectrum in the vicinity of the weak n → π∗ transition, which is responsible for photolysis of organic nitrates in the atmosphere. For both alkyl nitrates and… (More)
