Response to Comment on "Unexpected Epoxide Formation in the Gas-Phase Photooxidation of Isoprene"


Claeys questions whether gaseous epoxydiol is formed from the oxidation of isoprene and whether it is relevant to the formation of isoprene-derived secondary organic aerosol (iSOA). We argue that the alternative mechanism she proposes for iSOA applies primarily to chamber studies with high isoprene and is not as important in the atmosphere, where isoprene concentrations are much lower.
