Ozone decay in irradiated smog chambers.


Studies conducted in smog chambers show that ozone disappears significantly faster under irradiation than in the dark. A computer simulation was made to determine the cause for this accelerated O3 decay. It was found that the phenomenon can be explained by a series of chemical reactions involving O3, O1D, H2O, OH, HO2, and ultraviolet light.
