Abstract

Formation of the NO3 radical was observed following photolysis of the CH2I2 + O2 system at 248 nm under ambient atmospheric boundary layer conditions (~760 Torr and 297 K) in the presence of NO2. The Criegee intermediate (CI) CH2OO is believed to be responsible for the NO3 production. The potential of such reactions to enhance the rate of NO3 production in the atmosphere is discussed.
