Abstract

The relative rate technique has been used to measure rate constants for the reaction of chlorine atoms with nitro methane, nitro ethane, nitro propane, nitro butane, nitro pentane, ethyl nitrate, isopropyl nitrate, n-propyl nitrate, 2-pentyl nitrate, and 2-heptyl nitrate. Decay rates of these organic species were measured relative to one or more of the following reference compounds; n-butane, ethane, chloroethane, and methane. Experiments were performed at 295 ± 2 K and atmospheric pressure (approximately 740 torr) of synthetic air. The results are discussed with respect to the previous literature data and to the modelling of these compounds in the atmosphere.
