Abstract

Peroxy radicals form in the atm. oxidn. of nearly every volatile org. compd. (VOC). Their competing fates propagate or terminate free radical chem. in the troposphere. Atomic chlorine is a minor tropospheric oxidant, found in marine and coastal regions, which reacts with volatile alkenes to yield chlorine-substituted peroxy radicals. In this work, we present the near-IR absorption spectra of peroxy radicals formed in the chorine-initiated oxidn. of a variety of VOCs including isoprene, the most important nonmethane hydrocarbon emitted into the troposphere. We use cavity ringdown spectroscopy to observe the weak A-X electronic transition of peroxy radicals in the near-IR region. By monitoring the temporal decay of absorption features under varying radical environments, we report rate consts. for the self reaction of chlorine-substituted peroxy radicals as well as their dominant atm. fates: reaction with HO_2 and NO. Reaction with HO_2 is important in pristine environments while reaction with NO dominates in polluted regions. We compare our results to those available for hydroxyl-substituted and alkyl peroxy radicals to elucidate the effect of chlorine substitution on peroxy radical reactivity. To our knowledge, these results report the first near-IR absorption spectrum of a peroxy radical derived from isoprene oxidn. The real-time kinetic measurements of the reaction with HO_2 and NO provide insight into the highly atmospherically relevant isoprene system.
