Kinetics study of the aromatic bicyclic peroxy radical + NO reaction: overall rate constant and nitrate product yield measurements.

Abstract

The measurements of the overall bicyclic peroxy radical + NO rate constant for the 1,3,5-trimethylbenzene (1,3,5-TMB) system and of the nitrate product yields for the benzene, toluene, p-xylene, and 1,3,5-TMB systems were performed via the turbulent flow chemical ionization mass spectrometry technique. While the overall rate constant was found to be consistent with the value used in the most detailed aromatic oxidation kinetic model (Master Chemical Mechanism, MCM), the nitrate product yields were found to be generally lower than predicted by the MCM and to have a different aromatic species-specific dependence than the MCM predicts.
