Abstract:
The kinetics of recombination reactions is discussed in the light of current theory. A simplified working expression is derived for the calcn. of effective rate consts. of atm. recombination reactions as a function of altitude. This expression is applied to the study of the effective atm. fall-off behavior of the reactions OH + NO2, OH + NO, OH + SO2, ClO + NO2, and HO2 + NO2.
