A systematic evaluation of known homogeneous SO₂ reactions which might be important in air pollution chemistry is carried out. A mechanism is developed to represent the chemistry of NO_x/hydrocarbon/SO₂ systems, and the mechanism is used to analyze available experimental data appropriate for quantitative analysis of SO₂ oxidation kinetics. Detailed comparisons of observed and predicted concentration behavior are presented. In all cases, observed SO₂ oxidation rates cannot be explained solely on the basis of those SO₂ reactions for which rate constants have been measured. The role of ozone-olefin reactions in SO₂ oxidation is elucidated.
